To get a "ball-Park" adjustment, just turn the adjustment mechanism (with drum removed) 'till you can just put the drum back on and it turns without binding. Your self-adjusters will finish the job for you as you drive. Worst thing you can do is set initial adjustment too tight as that will burn the shoes before they get a chance to properly break in. Doing it how I said, will avoid that.
The crank sensor on this 2000 hyundai accent is located on the leftside of engine near the rear exhaust manifold.this is if your standing on the driverside looking at the engine your left is the side the front is on, hope this helps, heres a picture to help you.
Take off any hub caps and loosen the lug nuts (just loosen them) with the tire still on the ground it is way easier this way. Jack up the rear and set the car on stands as secure as you can, please be safe. Place chocks under the front wheels to keep it from moving off the stands. Finish removing the lug nuts and remove the rear wheels. Look on the outer edge of your brake drum for a punch slot, it is an oval looking indention in the drum that you punch out to access the rear brake adjusters. If you do not see this punch slot look on the rear back plate for a rubber cap that you can pry out with a screw driver. Inside will be the brake shoes adjusters, you have to back off the adjusters to get the drum off the axel. Once you have backed off the adjusters, you can use a hammer and hitting the drum on the front edge it should come loose now to access the brake shoes. Next work on one side at the time using the other side as your guide remove & replace the shoes . Put it back together.
