Default WRX Rear brake question

Someone told me the wrx parking brake was actually a small drum brake in the rear rotor hub. Is that true? How do you adjust the parking brake? I have 45k miles now and the parking brake handle comes up quite far.
Thanks for the help.

Yes it is a drum, you adjust the parking brake where the lever is. You have to find where the parking brake cables are under the boot and turn a little nut to tighten it.

Thats true you can adjust the brake drum shoes with the adjuster.There should be a rubber gromet at the bottom on the back side of the dust shield, you pull that out and the adjuster is in the hole.As long as there is enough life left on your shoes you can adjust the parking brake.
