I'm having a bit of trouble adjusting the drum brakes on my 2006 Mazda Tribute. I'm looking at the backing plate of the drum, but I can't find the rubber plug I'm supposed to pull off to expose the star gear. Am I just missing it (and if so, where is it?), Or did Mazda change the way we're supposed to adjust the drum?

There is no access in the backing plate, you will have to take the drums off to adjust.

Thanks Protech1980 -- I was afraid of that, but hoped that wasn't the case. Thanks again for your help.
