My mechanic told me I needed to adjust my rear brakes and offer to clean it for about $40. Never heard that brakes can be adjusted is he pulling a fast one on me?

cleaning you can do yourself with some spray. About the adjustment, I dunno.

P.S. it would help if you told us what kind of car you have and what type of brakes.
If you have drums in the rear, you can get some adjustment out of them. If your E-Brake is not very tight, adjusting the drums will tighten it up.
I have a 96 toyota tacoma 2.4L. How hard is it to clean and adjust?
