Handbrake how do you adjust handbrake tension

Answers :

This car has rear drum brakes and are very easy to adjust. jack up and support the car look for slots with rubber plugs in them at the backing plates of the rear wheels, get a screwdriver and insert it into the slot the is an adjuster in there and you want to turn that just a few turns youll hear it click one little turn at a time continue doing this to both rear wheels untill you just feel them drag just a little as you manuelly turn the wheel by hand this will be plenty (you dont want them very tight as you drive and the brakes heat up they will expand and if they are too tight will drag and overheat please rate -jeff
