AbstractA rotating drive for an adjusting spindle of a disk brake for motor vehicles, in particular street vehicles, has a cam lever (4), which can be rotated around an axis (19) parallel to the brake disk, comprising one cantilever (23) on each side of said lever comprising angular offset radial boreholes (24, 24') which receive radial pins (17, 17'). The pins (17, 17') reach into the double forked end of a drive lever (15), which can be rotated around an axis (20), crossing at right angles at a distance from the axis (19). The rotational movements of the drive lever (15) are transferred to a reset drive, which belongs to an adjusting spindle extending at right angles to the plane of the brake disk.
