Default rear brake adjustment ???????

Hey guys, quick question, Just replaced rear shoes on my daughters 06 aerio, and I see how the adjuster works on em, but how the heck do you adjust em once the drums are on the car??? Is there an auto adjust sequence, or is there some way to manually adjust em. Thanks in advance. Clyde

they are self adjusting. its a ratcheting system. every time you pulled the handle tight if you have lose some pad it will ratchet down a spot to allow for proper spacing and braking. This is only if you adjusted them properly when installing the new pads.

back up briskly don't stab the brakes put push them in hard to stop then move forward, this should move the aduster to its outboard limit within the shoes. When you put the mess back together I'm assuming you cleaned out the little teeth and lubricated the linkage so when you do this it will move smoothly. I just did mine a couple months ago and wire brushed the teeth hard to make sure the grooves were clean and it adjusted right up on it's own.
