Parking breaks adjustment

Hi everyone
Got 07 gl450. Parking break seems to be weak.
How can I adjust them?

Thanks

Take the rear wheels off and outside of the lugs you will see a black rubber small grommet. Take that out and then rotate the rotor untill you see an adjusting wheel. Use a flathead screwdriver to tighten all the way up then back off and keep checking. The tighter you go, the more noise you may get from the shoes rubbing on the rotor, so dont go too tight. You just have to mess with it to get the correct feel you want

I think mercedes spec is to adjust it to a point where the wheel won't turn, then back it off 5 "clicks" or notches of the star wheel.
