I dont understand what you mean... there is room in between the caliper bracket and housing to get out the rubber cover and adjust the brake... its not the simplest thing, but it works.. took me about 20 minutes to adjust both rear brakes

no jeep here...

true. you can pop the rubber plugs out with everything in place. what kind of tool do i need to stick in there to adjust this thing? mine doesn't do squat at the moment and i need to tighten it up...

do we have a writeup for this thing?

Does anyone have a write-up for adjusting the e-brake? Mine's a loose pile of f*cking crap and doesn't even hold the Jeep still on a horizontal surface.

Mine is starting to act like a whore's vagina. Is there a writeup to tighten this up?

i think it can be adjusted by doing the back-up and hit the brake thing.... if not that way, back up and pull up on the e-brake handle

Feeling the pain here too, month after I bought mine it crapped out, warranty efforts failed, pretty much useless weight, bad design. I'm considering carrying around a chunk of firewood to stick behind the tire
