Default Let make it simple...

For the rear brakes, just be certain the emergency brake is not set...after you have pulled the wheel off and removed the caliper, just observe...you will see a hole for adjusting the emergency brake shoe...I have never touched mine. Just be certain everything is put back just as it was taken off.

I have not done it in a while so my words may not seem so cogent. Just do it; it will all make sense. Besides, most anybody can take anything apart, it's putting it back together where the challenges may be. I hope this helps a little.

Maybe I'll adjust my emergency brake some day....

One trick if'n the rotors don't wanna come off hub easily. That's what those threaded holes between the wheel studs are for. Thead an 8 mm bolt in each and work back and forth with tightening them until rotor pops off.

It's really, really, really easy to do! And after having done it once, you'll kick yourself for not having tried to adjust it earlier.
