Question about 2008 Toyota Yaris 1.5
Just changed brakes
Under the car the is a wire and that has adjuster on it you have to screw the nut to take up the slack but leave a bit of slack or the brake will go on.

SOURCE: I need to know how
If you look down at the parking brake lever from above there should be a tightning bolt to adjust the position of the lever. Never done this on Yaris, Let me know if the adjustment nut is there, if not I will check further. Thanks

After you put it all back together did you drive the car in reverse then apply park brake? If not give this a try, just use your hand park to stop the car, these should fix the problem,Let me know how you made out.

Its A Rear Tire Id Guess Its Gotta Be A Problem With The Brakes And Not The Brake Pad. I Would Recommend Taking It To A Mechanic If Thats Not An Option Get The Book. Jack Up The Vehicle And Remove The Suspicious Tire. Mark One Spot On The Drum And One Spot On The Center Hub. Then Check The Inside Of The Drum Once Removed And Inspect it Also Check Your Brake Pads. Not Many People Know That Drum Pads Release Outward Instead Of Inward Like Disc Brakes. Hopefully This Will Help You

SOURCE: rear emergency brake adjustment
On the rear drums are rubber plugs. Remove the tire and locate the plug and remove it. The adjuster is at 12-1:00 position. Using a screwdriver or adjusting spoon, you would rotate the star adjustment upwards...you should hear the clicks...but do a little at a time and rotate the drum. I know this because I just did this yesterday to my 2005. I got tired of hitting the brakes twice to get the slop out of the rears. Pads are good even at 35k...but the adjusters were seized up so I had to remove them and run a wire brush over the threads and apply antiseize to them. works like a champ now.
