parking brake adjustment

Hello all. Does anyone know how to adjust the parking brakes on a 2000 f350 dually with disk brakes? Did not see any hole to access the star adjuster on back of the brakes.

There is a rubber plug you have to pull out. The drive side is on the bottom and the passenger side is on the top of the backing plate.

I am such a n00b with my truck. I need to adjust mine too. How many clicks should I hear before I know its properly adjusted? Or should I just adjust 2-3 clicks at a time untill I dont get mowed over by my truck? haha

Okay guys my truck is doing the same darn thing. When I go to jack it up to adjust the brake cable thingy do I need to have the Pbrake set or off. I'm a blonde chick and need a little better instructions. My truck won't hold at all. And like others have said it's an pain in the rear to hook to a trailer cutting her on and off. It's a 99 F350 dually if it makes any difference 6speed. Yall HELP
