Turning the adjusting nut clockwise shortens the stroke tightens up the brake. You then take the TRUCK IRON, back off the brake to where you want it set, then remove the key or whatever you have used to hold the pawl out and it will snap back into place. Which Haldex slack adjuster do I need?
They require you to remove a pawl assembly to back them off on the earlier auto slacks, and the current units just require you to pry up a button on the pawl's cap to release the pawl.
Once you have the desired free travel, you can use the hammerhead of the TRUCK IRON to tap the brake drum to check for a clear ringing sound indicating the brake pad is not too tight to the brake drum.
On the other hand, if it backs off too easily, the auto slack needs replacement. Thanks for info.
