E-Brake

So after taking care of my inspection problem my E-brake was still loose, so i tightened it all i could up at the handle to no avail. Now the haynes manual says that there are star shaped tightening pins inside where 2 of the rear lugnuts thread in???
has anyone done this before because this is the one system on the car i have not either replaced or fixed and i dont have time to screw around with it trying to figure it out.

Anybody who knows anything about a 1986 325 has probably been in the line for the early bird buffet since 2:00. Try again tomorrow.

so since i couldnt get any help on here i pulled the rear rotors off and BAM there were the emergency brake pads... worn down to nothing, now that they are replaced i have a handy EBrake... too bad i didnt know E 30s had drum brake style E-brake bads on the inside of the disk brake rotors or this would have been alot simpler
