I have a 2011 focus, I removed my drums to check shoe thickness, not realizing until after I removed it there is a removable plug on the back side of drum to do the same thing. Anyway all I had to do was remove the silver dust cap and the 30mm “one time use only nut”. Drum was a little hard to get off but moving it side to side, up and down it eventually got it off. Bearings are in the drum. Not sure if this is the same set up on your year model but I did watch a video on using a 03 focus doing the same thing I did on mine. And Saabafoo to answer your question I have a little over 23k miles and my shoes looked to be about 5-6mm thick.
