    Pull the rear rotors off. The ebrake shoe is inside of it. There should be a star adjuster wheel (like on old drum brakes) where the one piece shoe's opening is. 9 times out of 10 that is where the problem is.

    No...not self adjusting....I just had to pull my rotors off and turn the dials out a few turns.....tightened everything right back up......Also, while you have them off you may as well make sure they have some grease in them....pull the star wheel off, be careful not to lose the little piece inside...and then squirt away.....I had mine apart and my youngest son decided to take off with it and I never found that piece again....it was a trip to the old junk yard and a quick strip of a Grand Prix.....lol.....
