Question about Ford Contour
Hi, Did you slacken off the emergency brake cable, as this maybe whats holding the shoes out to much.
The lever in the drum should go back to its rest position, in this position the drum should go on with clearance.
Then you should be able to adjust the self adjusters to minimise the clearance between the drum
and shoes ( but pressing your foot on the brake pedal several times should do this ).
Also another problem might be the wheel cylinder is siezed in the out position holding the shoes apart.
I hope i have been of some help to you
