Well, that's not really the right way to remove it. If you look at the drum there is a screw hole on it. You are supposed to put a screw into there and turn it until the drum comes off. That's why it's there...anyhow, make sure your e-brake isn't set, I would pop off the lid off the master cylinder. Then you can try to squeeze the rear pads in just enough to slip the drum back on.

i think i told you before...adjust the star wheel on the bottom so the shoes grip the drum a little tighter but not too tight

FYI...well i own 4 disc brakes but the star wheel should be located on the bottom center..theres a thing that looks kinda like a bicycle gear, turn it and everytime you do it should click. if so thats the star wheel..very easy to do..good luck let me know if you got it
