Ok, I'msitting outside working on my car right now. (85 chevette) The question I have is which side relatively should have leftt or right threads on the self adjuster? Because the self adjuster repair kit has opposite threads than what's on my car currently. But rear brakes do not work correctly now... help PLEASE!!!

If you have not pulled everything off yet.

Pull on the adjusting cable (the one that is anchored at the top and has the adjusting finger on it at the bottom) in the line of operation, and when it is released you will be able to tell in which direction the star wheel should turn to expand the shoes..

(picturing in my pointed little head)

Driver side----clockwise to expand
Pass----------c/clockwise to expand

Not absolutely positive about this,

Bryan
