Hi, welcome to the forum! I suggest you post this thread in the Suspension & Brakes section, you'll get a lot more responses. Maybe a mod will move it for you...

I am not familiar with the drum brake set up on a Frontier. On my 200SX, I used a rubber mallet to tap the edges of the drum. Came off easy after a couple of whacks. Oh, and remember to release the parking brake.....I made that mistake...:D:D:D Also, check to see if the drum has two threaded holes on it. If you can find a bolts to fit those holes, you can pop off the drum by alternately tightening the bolts in the holes.

That's all the advice I can offer, anything else would be specific to the Sentra/200SX platform. I have no idea if they closely resemble the Frontier brake system. Hopefully another member can come along and provide more information....

EDIT - Forgot to mention you should run a search on the forum, maybe someone else has already made a thread about drum brake removal on your vehicle. Good luck.
