welcome to the forums
there is no adjusting screw,
[b]Umm,, USA model has a threaded adjuster. Just not accessible from outside the works..
the brakes are self adjusting.
[b]Correct, provided the driver does his part, but see it typical that every 15,000 a maunual adjust is best to keep things going
the reason you can't get the drums off is the brake shoes have worn a ridge on the drum.
[b]More so rust..
first let the parking brake adjuster right off, this will help. you will then have to force the drum off using a hammer and lever the drum between the drum and the back plate. you will likely need new drums as well as new shoes
[b]Hopefully you not break the hold down pins and caps... real pain on Accent. I just carck the drum with hammer till it jump loose at the hub,, the rock/pull/carefully pry the drum off.. sometimes light load while prying and knock with hammer will let the drumm squeek off,,, then resurface the drums to make flat and get rid of lip, then you can adjust shoes to the drum and be able to freely install the drum..
