This proceedure is for the V6 Camry with rear disk brakes (almost the same car). The course adjustment is done with the adjusting screw between the parking brake shoes. The fine adjustment is done using the parking brake. Pull up parking brake handle with 22lbf of force and hold, drive car 31MPH for 0.25 mile. Repeat 2-3 times.
