hello, the ebrakes use brake shoes inside the rear disc brake rotors. You remove the tire/wheel, then turn the brake rotor on the left side till the hole in the face of the rotor is at the top center, you then insert a long thin tool like tin regular tip screwdriver and turn the adjusting wheel. you may only have to turn it a few clcks, BTW: you do this AFTER you spin a few lug nuts back on the studs to hold rotor in place, You spin the wheel a few clicks as shown in diagram I have included and this will tighten that side more . I am not there nor looking at the ebrake shoes , but this is how you adjust. Your not that far off so by turning that star wheel a few + clicks will tighten that side
