Using a flat-blade screwdriver, rotate the adjuster counterclockwise until the brake disc cannot be rotated.
NOTE:The brake shoe return spring next to the adjuster prevents the adjuster from rotating under normal operating conditions. Make sure that the spring is seated between the adjuster spokes when brake adjustment is complete.
