to adjust the hand brake pull off the h brake cover then inside the car covering the h brake

then you will see a nut on a thread.
pub a brick or similar behind the tryre to stop the car rolling
release the h brake then screw down the nut a couple of turns
then apply the h brake without pressing the button on it in
until it applies with 2 to 3 clicks on the ratchet.
once done replace the cover & remove the brick & away you go

to replace the brake shoes it's a little fiddly
to explane but an easy job to do

bet to buy a haynes manual for the diagrams for it m8.
do both sides at the same time
