I was at a Junkyard "practicing" since when I go under my own 83 240D I want to be professional and not break anything. I took the rear hubs off and found the parking brakes and the toothed wheel adjuster. It was a 100 degrees out and I couldn't get underneath the car.
Is this the only way to adjust the parking brake? Mine presently has no braking action.

You should check the linings to be sure that they are intact. Then adjust them inside the drum by turning the adjustment screw to tighten them. The final adjustment is a 13mm under the car above the driveshaft. Turn the screw clockwise to tighten. You want to have 3-5 teeth click when pushing the pedal down.
