Backing off the self-adjuster?

Recommended Posts

As the topic states, I need to back off the brake self adjuster on my 210/b310.


I pulled the drums to replace wheel cylinders, and hadn't realized at the time that they were self-adjusting, but had my brother pull the handbrake a few notches the get the shoe clear of the wheel cylinder.


Now the drum doesn't clear the shoes, and theres no info anywhere on backing it off dry.gif

Got it! I thought there was some trick to it, but turns out I just didn't have the spring loaded plate up all the way releasing the star wheel.


Although, it's funny, they aren't self-adjusting when the handbrake is set blink.gif hmmm......
