To get a "ball-Park" adjustment, just turn the adjustment mechanism (with drum removed) 'till you can just put the drum back on and it turns without binding. Your self-adjusters will finish the job for you as you drive. Worst thing you can do is set initial adjustment too tight as that will burn the shoes before they get a chance to properly break in. Doing it how I said, will avoid that.

Where can I find the back brake adjustment wheel on a 2001 hyundai accent


look for a small slot in the top of the backing plate ( plugged up with a rubber block). Inside there will be small notched wheel that screws a threaded bar . Because of the conditions of the backing plate some manufacturers put the hole in the drum behind the wheel meaning the wheel has to be removed first.

Rear brakes gone at 30,000 miles. Is this normal?


Certainly not. Still under warranty? Are they rear calipers or drum brakes with brake shoes? If drum brakes, they are self adjusting. You drive in reverse a short distance, hit the brakes, reverse again, hit the brakes. Every time you do that, the adjuster will move the brake shoes outward as needed to adjust for wear.
Try it and see if the brakes are better. Brakes with calipers and rotors do not require adjustment-they are truly self adjusting.

Squeeks from rear brakes when cornering, when i press the brake pedal it stops


Your rear brakes need adjustment, you must remove the wheels, drums. Clean and lubricate the contact points and adjust the adjuster to specs.

jack up the rear wheel and spin it, do this with the other wheels chocked for safety, and listen for any rubbing sound, do this with both rear wheels and if one is bad then remove the drum again to check if the retainer has come off of the brake lining, hope this helps you.
