Question about 2002 Chevrolet Tracker
This has happen three times on my Chevy Tracker. The brake adjuster on the drivers side back keeps sliding or comes free from the spring assembly an going into my brake shoes and getting torn all up. We did a print out on the drum brake components and did not see any parts missing. What would cause this to happen? I can not afford for this to keep happening!
Hi Joe,it could be your e-brake cable that is connected to the back brake shoe.

SOURCE: i'm replacing my rear brake
Parking brake lever on leading shoe (end of retractor spring in its hole on the leading shoe). Make sure the the adjuster screw assembly is engaged properly with the leading shoe (also, engaged with the parking brake lever). Adjuster actuator installed on the trailing shoe (also, engaged with the adjuster screw assembly). After inserting the retractor spring in its hole on the trailing shoe, insert actuator spring in its hole (just below wheel cylinder) in leading shoe and stretch across and connect it to the adjuster actuator. Adjust star wheel to get shoes close to drum. Reinstall drum (shoes close with no rub). Reinstall wheel. Push brake pedal for final adjustment. Test forward. Test Backwards. If everything is in the correct place, nothing should pop off. I hope you have a before picture. Haynes manual has good pictures. I own a 2002 Pontiac Montana, but a family member has taken it out of town. My info is from the Haynes manual. I replaced the brake shoes a couple years ago.
