Three adjust one way (eg. clockwise) and one adjusts the other.
The outer adjustments have lock nuts and tightening the lock nuts can change the adjustment.
The outer adjustments should have covers but may not.
The outer adjustments should have 'C' clips to stop the adjuster pulling in instead of pushing the piston (but may not). If the adjuster pulls in the caliper may leak at the adjuster but if you can get the adjuster back out it should stop leaking.
Loosen the "ebrake"
Adjust the inner pads so that the disk locks when turned by hand.
Loosen the inner pads until the disk just turns by hand.
Using the special tool (or a socket held with vice grips) loosen the lock nuts on the outer pads.
Adjust the outer pads with an allen key so that the disk locks when turned by hand. If there are no 'C' clips (described above) do not turn the adjuster past the point where the groove for the 'C' clip starts disappearing. If this happens you need to find some suitable "C' clips.
Loosen the outer pads with an allen key until the disk just turns by hand.
While holding the allen key, tighten the lock nut. Check that the disk still just turns by hand.
Adjust the "ebrake" until three clicks is hard on.
