There is no adjuster !

Remove back plate plug (1) attached to the back side of brake back plate so as to increase clearance between brake shoe and brake drum.
Insert a screwdriver into plug hole till its tip contacts shoe hold down spring and push screwdriver in the arrow direction.
With this push, hold down spring is pushed up and releases parking shoe lever from hold down spring, resulting in larger clearance
