You don't. They are self adjusting. Don't try to adjust them

Actually if you find a safe place and go in reverse up to about 15 mph, then hit the brakes hard. Do this a few times, maybe 4-5 but what makes you think they need adjustment?

Thanks. When I push on the rear wheels they rotate more than 1 full circle and my Parking brake is about 10 clicks. ( I am 63 and use to the old method but there is a access slot for the star adjuster.) I guess the parking brake is a separate adjustment. Great response & thank you for your time & expertise.

My Corolla is about 8 - 10 clicks before it is set. And the front brakes do 70%+ of stopping anyway. You are fine, no worries. And thank you for the compliment. I am 61 and am old-school myself. Correct, there is no slot for a screwdriver to turn the 'star' wheel on that car. It's very similar to the old proven designs but improved

I have a 2010 Corolla and there is ano adjustment slot for the rear brakes, I just did them. Reverse up to 15 mpg and hitting the brakes will adjust them as well.
