Front drum removal

How do you take the front drums off? The Bentley says you need some sort of tool, but is there a way to get them off without that tool?

Pry off cap. Take off nut, then retaining metal thingy that bends on nut, then second nut, pull off drum. Might have to retract shoes if drum won't turn, same as watertrash.

The cap is what I was wondering about. Any easy way to do it?

Screw driver, hammer, or I set a 3/8 extension length way on the gas then hit it so the round edge of extension pushes off the cap.

Brakes are all good :)

Just have to replace the soft hoses and a few rubber bits.
