Kia Brakes

Up until now, replacing brake shoes has been easy. Now I have run into a brake drum setup that does not make sense to me. I have a 1999 Kia Sephia with front discs and rear drums. There are two screws on each wheel. I see no reason behind this. Does the lug-nuts hold the drum on or do I have to remove the screws first. They are factory screws that are real tight. I striped the head(cross-tip) off one and am afraid to continue. I have a vague Haynes Brake Manual; they have not published a manual for my car, and my Chiltons Manual does not cover my brake setup.

On the drums?

If you are talking about the screws on the rear drum I believe that these are to remove the drum (not the screws).You remove screws and get some long bolts with the same thread.Then you tighten the bolts a little at a time this will force the drum off.I think the screws are there just to keep threads clean.
