Default Re: 2003 L200 Rear Brakes

Are you aware of an access hole on the backing plate to; insert a screwdriver in the access hole and push the park brake lever toward the outside of the drum to release the shoes from the adjuster. All star wheel adjusters allow manually adjusting them for brake shoe contact before and after putting drums on. When the drum retaining screw is removed, well worn drums have an inside lip that prevents drum removal so adjusting the star wheel to retract brakes allows clears the lip for drum removal.
