Question about Buick Park Avenue
FIRST JACK THE CAR UP THEN TO PROCEED TO TAKE OFF BOTH WHEELS IN THE REAR. CHECK BRAKE SHOES TO MAKE SURE THEY NEED REPLACEMENT. YOU WILL HAVE TO HAVE CERTAIN TOOLS TO REMOVE THE 2 SPRINGS OR YOU CAN USE PLIERS. IT'S EASY TO TALE OFF ONE SIDE OFF AT A TIME. THAT WAY IF YOU NEED TO CHECK THE ONE SIDE YOU JUST LOOK AND SEE IF YOU PUT ALL THE SPRINGS AND HARD PARTS BACK TOGETHER.

The rear brakes do not require manual adjustment. Adjust the shoes by sharply applying the brake pedal several times while driving the vehicle alternately forwards and backwards. Check the brake operation by making several stops while driving forward. The self-adjusting mechanism will sufficiently adjust the rear brake shoes without any manual tightening at the brake shoe adjuster. If the rear brake shoes are manually adjusted, the additional action of the brake shoe adjuster can cause the brakes to become over-tightened and result in binding or overheated rear brakes.
Hope this helps.
