Default Rear brake shoes

Has anyone replaced these and how hard is it? I was told by Crappy Tire that you had to pull the axel shaft to change the shoes and then repack the bearings. I had a look at them today and it looks like the shoes will come out without removing the shaft, but there is a big mother return spring that looks like it would be hard to remove with the shaft in.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanx
Phil

Here's a couple of videos on changing rear brake shoes. The second video is for a Honda Odyssey; but, is quite similar:

I replaced front and back brakes a few days ago on a 95 accord lx. There is no shaft on the rear but it is easier to remove the hub to access the shoes. Mine needed a 32mm socket to remove the large nut and from there it was easy. The big spring is a pain on the first one but the second one is a breeze. If you have done rear brakes before this is no different, do one side at a time in case you need to see how it goes back together.

Thanks for that,don't know where my head was. Of course with a FWD there's no shaft. (duh)

Makes me feel more like doing it now
