You will need a thin flat blade screwdriver about 7'' long, a small bright light (pen light), and ensure parking brake is released.

Raise rear of car and lower on jack stands. Remove 1 wheel bolt at left and right rear wheel. Using the pen light shine in wheel bolt hole and locate adjuster star wheel.

Rotate adjuster until tight, then back off 4 turns (wheel should spin with slight drag after).

Apply parking brake 3 clicks, check if rear wheels rotate. If they do, adjust star wheel until snug.

Release parking brake and ensure rear wheels spin freely with little to no drag.

Reassemble and lower car. Drive rearward and apply parking brake, if on side pulls up higher then adjust equalizer at parking brake.

Apply parking brake, pull back boot and locate two adjustment nuts on cables. Adjust accordingly to achieve desired result.
