I'm not sure how to describe it, but you have to use a brake spoon or a flat head screw driver and move the 'adjuster' to relsease the shoes, it will be located behind the little oval hole thats about as wide as a quarter.

if you turn it the wrong way it'll make it harder to turn the drum, so make sure you keep checking it until your sure you're going the right way.

oye nvm, i just crawled outa bed.. I'm not sure any more sorry
