Thanks anyway but I worked it out today. I think the details you have given are for my old 75 series. The VDJ79 does not have the plug on the rear to insert a screwdriver in and you actually have to get to the adjuster by taking off the disk/drum as far as I can tell.

The adjuster you're talking about is for the brakes, the normal brakes. The hand, or parking brake has a threaded rod that is the adjustment.
