Angry having back brake trouble with E-brake

I just bought new callipers prolly junk. But the E-brake pulls the spring back but dont push the brake cylinder out thers some bolt in the back on the back of the caliper next to the E-brake part but it leads to nothing the bolt is just pluging a whole that leads to nuthing! Thers no holes that lead to or from this bolt hole. Even for maybe some gear oil, but if i was to stick anything in it, it would just sit ther no pressurization or anything? Can anybody help

your talking about the adjuster, it takes an allen wrench tot loosen/tighten it. if you didnt adjust the brakes before you tried the ebrake this is your problem.

Adjuster makes it tight, then ebrake works.

Should be a bolt that seals the allen head. You back it out to back out the caliper, when putting it back tighten it till the allen key won't turn any farther then back it out a half turn. Use your brake a little bit and after 4-5 pumps it should reset it's self.

I thought the manual say to back it out 1/3. But anyways there are a lot of people who still don't know how to do the adjustment on the rear brakes. This thread should be a saved in the brake section.
