Z32 300zx Ebrake adjust?

Tried adjusting me E-brake from the bolt below it. Didnt work. I apparently have to adjust it from behind the wheel. i know theres like a plug that needs to be twisted behind the rotor i think....can someone tell me how to properly do this?

The process is not difficult to do; it's time consuming.

Stop block all wheels touching the ground.
Release e-brake.
Jack-up your car.
Take the wheel off.
Put the car in neutral; you need the spin the rear wheel freely to test your adjustments.
Locate the e-brake adjustment hole. It is usually protected by a rubber seal:

Rotate the brake rotor, so the hole is lined up with the adjuster in the picture below:

Using a flat head screw driver, rotate the adjuster until you cannot rotate the rotor by hand.
Now, using the adjuster, release the e-brake by 4 clicks.

Thanks so much ! Fixed it. I think mine is currently at 7 clicks from what used to be 15. If i Yank it then it stops at about 9. My Friend says 3 clicks is what it should be? How many?

On a side note....Anyone have an extra rubber plug for the rotor? was taking mine out and somehow it got swallowed in the rotor and sits on the bottom.
