Question about 1997 GMC Sierra
When the truck is jacked up the brakes do not stop the wheels from turning in rear.how do you adjust ?
If you look at the bottom of the rear brake drum you should find a little opening sometimes it has a rubber plug inserted in it. Pull out the plug and use a thin straight screwdriver to feel for the adjuster. The adjuster has a spoked wheel on it thatyou can turn with the screwdriver just turn it a couple of clicks at a time till you feel drag on the wheel whenyou turn it by hand.

Remove the center console covering the parking brake lever. Locate the parking brake lever between the drivers seat and the front passenger seat. Put the parking brake lever in the lowest position.
Turn the cable adjuster locknut to make the nut loose. Find the nut at the base of the parking brake lever.
Raise your GT rear wheels using a jack and support the rear wheels using jack stands. Remove both rear wheels using a tire iron to loosen and take off the lug nuts. Take off the tire from the rods by hand.
Get underneath the car and remove the rubber hole plugs from the brake rotors. Locate the rotors on the underneath inside of the wheel wells.
Take off the brake calipers with a screwdriver, but do not disconnect the brake fluid lines.
Use a pry bar to push up on the parking brake self adjuster wheel. Locate this next to the brake caliper and it looks like a star wheel. Rotate this wheel until the rotors will not turn.
Turn the adjuster wheel five notches in the opposite direction. Reinstall the calipers and wheels. Lower your GT using the jack and remove the jack stands from the rear wheels.
