Parking Brake Adustment on 201

After replacing front & rear rotors & pads I still have grinding sound just before coming to a stop. Could this be a parking brake problem? How do I
adjust the parking brake? TIA.

put the car on stands and remove the rear roadwheels. in each hub at the back is a hole, through which you can put a screwdriver or similar to turn the small toothed wheel that adjusts the parking brake pads. turn the toothed wheel until the roadwheel cannot rotate, then back off a notch or two. do the same with the other side. you can then take up any slack in the cable by turning the adjusting nut on the cable at the point where it divides to send a cable to each rear hub.

I know on the W115 body style, if you jack up the rear wheels and undo one of the lug bolts on each rear wheel, you can rotate the wheels such that you see a star wheel. By rotating those star wheels with a flathead screwdriver, you adjust the tightness of the parking brake shoes on the wheels. Also, in the middle of the car, just above the differential, there's a screw that adjusts the length between the two parking brake cables.
But it could be WAY different on the 201's. These 115's are very simple machines for DIY adjustments.

No, it isn't. Turning the star wheel in one direction makes the pads move away from each other or vice versa.
