You really don't have to even worry about the parking brake. It's simply a drum brake within the brake disk. Usually it's never necessary to adjust them, unless someone was driving around with the parking brake engaged. Then you might have to loosen them up to get the brake disk off, or to get the new one on. It's easy though, with alittle turn of the self adjusting star wheel, just like standard drum brakes.

managed to change rotors, right rear was a little stuck, so i loosened the p-brake to get rotor off. came off, put new one on no-problem. now i have this scraping sound. i think p-brake is rubbing rotor lightly. maybe p-brake needs adjustment, also previous rotor looked rusty on brake surface, like brakes weren't working on that side or something, please help!!!
