Exclamation Having Issues. We Own a Cobalt. Lol

Hey ppl. I just replaced the brakes on our 05 cobalt. The back drums are scored all to hell. But anywho, I just replaced the pads and now we got no back brakes or E-brake. Any ideas of what I did wrong. Hope to hear back.

Thats a good starting point. Dustin are our brakes auto adjust or do you have to do it by hand?

I thought most modern drum brakes were auto adjust. Or maybe that's just for once you have them initially set up.
