Ford Contour LX rear brake automatic adjuster
 
http://www.fordforum.org/style_image...dpr/spacer.gif
1999 Ford contour LX (2.0L MFI DOHC 4cyl) _ rear brake shoes - the spring of the automatic adjuster came off. What is the correct position to install automatic adjuster and brake shoes? thanks

Can you not adjust that once the brake assembly is back together?

I'm not sure....I'll check in the morning.

Is that brake fluid all over the place? Did the wheel cyclinder explode? Is it leaking?

Yes, took me hours to clean everything....both side :( .......Now I can't put everything together...I need to figure out how to install this automatic adjuster

First rule of drum brakes, do one side at a time so you have one to use as a diagram.

Do you have a "u pull it" parts place nearby? You could pull a drum off and see the assembled version.
