Re rear emergency brake adjustment on WKs -- some posts here say there is a small hole on the back of the brake plate that let's you adjust them with a screwdriver, some say you have to take rotors off. Does someone know the definitive answer or do I just need to crawl under the car to have a look? :) Sounds nonsensical to me to adjust parking brake with the rotor off but dunno...
There is a plastic plug on the rear side. Star wheel adjustment is with a drum brake spoon (the old-timers know what I am talking about.). Take ID/OD measurements before re-assembly and note which way the wheel has to move to expand the shoes. Do this before installing the brake rotor. Re-assemble and adjust so parking brake works.

It should also self-adjust when backing up and braking to a stop.
