on most of the cars us use a special spanner tool that resembles a bent screwdriver. you pull the plastic cap out from the back of the drum and then just turn the ajustment wheel till you feal it tighten up a litle. Remember to put the plastic cap back on. Also a old trick most people don't know about is put the car in reverse in a parking lot, and slam on the brakes. most cars have a auto ajustment that they never use.

ok listen to me closely! There is an adjuster on ford aspires i cant remember if its the top or bottom but you will see the part im talking about. This piece sits directly between the brake shoes. This has been adjusted out and made longer which is normal with worn shoes! You need to twist the adjuster all the way in with new brake shoes. This part your gonna be looking for has a little round wheel on it with tiny little jaggers all the way around that wheel. It is made this way so that once it gets where its suppose to be it cant back off. Self adjusters is what you need to be looking for so if you cant find on your car google it "self adjusters for rear brake shoes" that will fix you right up, just remember run that little feller all the way in. Then that brake drum will slide right on there for ya

Not a solution per se but correction. 97 escort rear drum brakes do not use a STAR ADJUSTER. They use a "quadrant" adjuster attached to emergency brake cable I think. You'll see it coming out the back near top of backing plate. I don't think you can adjust them at all until drum is off. They are self adjusting once reinstalled.

The hand brake hardly ever needs ajusting. See your hand brake mechanincly spreads your rear brake shose inside the drum. Therefore just replace your rear shoes and make sure there ajusted right and you should have no more problems with that part of your car. PS make sure you put some 3M paste on the contact points on your backing plate to avoid a squeak in the near future.
