The VW brake adjusting screws are used inside the brake drums to change the position of the brake shoes on the backing plate. This allows you to adjust how much contact the shoes make with the drum. One end of the the adjustment screw is threaded into the star adjuster nut and the other has a groove to accept the inside edge of the brake shoe. Both parts are contained within the adjuster block on the backing plate. Two screws are needed for each brake drum. The brake shoe adjustment screws are sold individually.
The adjuster screw is used on:
-The front and rear of 1965 to 1977 Standard Beetle
