The front ones really can't be adjusted as they are hydrolic. The rear ones if they are drum brakes are self adjusting. I can go into detail one how to manually adjust them but the easiest way would drive the car in reverse at a pretty good little speed (don't kill yourself please) and then come to a plretty fast stop. Not to fast just nice a quick. the self adjusters in rear drum brakes adjust when the car is going in reverse. That to me would be the easiest way for you but that's my opinion anyhow. I do the same thing and I am an ASE master tech. Just do that a few times and they should adjust fine providing the adjusters are work correctly. anyhow, I hope this helps you and good luck.

Adjust rear brakes

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.
