It should be self adjusting (when u back up and apply the brakes, it adjusts ), and can also be manually adjusted (thru removal of the rubber plug on the backing plate). The adjuster (star wheel) can seize due to rusting and it won't adjust automatically or manually. Whenever u do a brake job, spray it w/ wd-40 and turn it back and forth several times to make sure it is free, then I put a dab of high temp. brake grease on the threads (only a small amount, as u don't want it dropping off and getting on the brake shoes).

You need a pullers to get it off.But if your lucky putting a screwdriver between the drum and back-plate and pize it when your hitting with a hammer it may come off.good luck.
