Hi, My name is***** you trying to loosen the adjuster so You can get the drum off?
Here is a picture of your rear brakes with the drum off. I you use a long thin screw driver to push the automatic adjuster lever away from the adjuster wheel and hold it while you loosen the wheel to loosen the brakes. The picture is for reference for the passenger side since adjuster wheel is toward back of vehicle.
Using the picture as reference just put your thin screw driver along next to the star wheel and push straight in until you feel resistance and push a little more to move lever away and you can then move star adjuster.
The cable hooks to the lever and is for actuating lever. Looking at picture you will be coming in from the hole in that back. The picture is with drum off. I hope this helps? It is a little tricky finding the lever but using a thin screw driver with the brake star too does the trick.
The cable is in my picture I sent you. Its like operating with your eyes closed.
You do have rear drum brakes like in the picture I sent you correct? I want to make sure you do not have 4 wheel disc brakes when the parking brakes are inside the little drum inside of the rotor.
If you have no other questions for me then please accept answers and rate my answers 5 STARS. Thanks.
