Question about 1997 Plymouth Breeze
If they are drum brakes thear is a adjuster on the botom holding the shoes. in the center of this double ended two prong fork thear is a disc that has small teeth on it. it will turn one direction easily. that titens them. to turn it the other you need a fleat head screw driver. you slip it inbetween the shaft of the forks and gently pry the tab that holds the disk from turning out till the disk will turn that direction freely. turn it only 1\2 turn. put the drum back on. if the drum turns easily but slightly rubs enough to make a sliding noize it is set properly. if the drum turns without and friction you have turend it to far. take the drum of and turn the disk without the screw driver one tooth at a time untill this happens. that should solve the problem.

The rear brakes do not require manual adjustment. Adjust the shoes by sharply applying the brake pedal several times while driving the vehicle alternately forwards and backwards. Check the brake operation by making several stops while driving forward. The self-adjusting mechanism will sufficiently adjust the rear brake shoes without any manual tightening at the brake shoe adjuster. If the rear brake shoes are manually adjusted, the additional action of the brake shoe adjuster can cause the brakes to become over-tightened and result in binding or overheated rear brakes.
Hope this helps.
