D44 E-Brake Problem

Hello.

After my rear D44 drum brakes were very muddy for many weeks my e-brake doesn´t work very good. The normal rear drum brakes work good after cleaning everything.
I think adjusting the e-brake would help, but how do I adjust it?

Or could there be another reason why the e-brake doesn´t work like it should? All brake wires look good and tight.

PS. I loosened the bolts that attached the brake wires to the rear UCAs for a better axle travel. Could that be the problem?

Thanks!
nicolas-eric

make sure your shoes are properly adjusted first, usually the problem.
make sure the star wheel isnt frozen.
you can usually get a screwdriver through the backing plate and adjust them all the way down(snug) and back them off a couple clicks just so they dont drag.
tightening the cable usually covers up a problem and also can create new ones
