To adjust the v70 parking brake, gently pry up at both front and back edges of plastic retaining cover for parking brake handle boot. Pull up on boot and invert. Lift up on white plastic dust cover. Set parking brake at one click. Using 10mm box wrench, tighten adjustment screw. To effective tension.
Not sure if I should have completely loosened adjuster screw before changing shoes. I don't thunk it should have needed so much adjustment after new shoes. Any thoughts?

It's likely the parking brake had never been adjusted before and the shoes could have been replaced without backing off the adjuster.
