Are awkward little beggar's, most of the time, if the hub will come off, I will take it off.
On the disc brake side, lift the rubber dust boot, spray a bit of wd40, inside.
It will then screw in easily.....
Took photos of the last set of drum breaks I did Corsa C and just could not get the sods back together needed a hook to manover the springs in place and didn't help that the new shoes ( Good quality I may add ) Did not come with the seating stub. ended up paying a mobile mechanic to come sort it.

He did say I was doing it right but .didn't have the right tools to complete the task

Still I've done four sets since owning cars and been successful once call me a coward but that's one job now I leave for someone else
