SOURCE: handbrake adjustment?
you havent set the rear brakes up properly,slacken off handbrake cable first,remove the rear shoe any side first or both together ,firstly with a small angle grinder flaten the lip thats built up around the edge of the drum ,taking care not to catch the shiney facing.then look at at the handbrake pulling arm and make sure it right the way back onto the shoe .Next the hard part and this is adjusting the the automatic adjuster till as you put drum on their is a slight resistance sliding over shoes but the drum turns with a slight resistance and a bit of noise where the shoes are just catching,Do both side sides and adjust handbrake till you have 3 notches (clicks) .check wheels still turn ok with a slight noise of the shoes dragging .Now footbrake should be firmer and this car will lock back wheels up at 30mph ,and bounce out the brake tester at the annual mechanical inspection

SOURCE: parking brake adjustment
On the accents what you need to do is to remove the plastic casing from around the parking brake mechanism. Towards the back on each side there is a screw that needs to come out. Then you will just need to wiggle the plastic casing out and around from the parking brake and set it aside with the screws. Once that is off on the inside there will be what looks like one long (gold colored) screw and at the bottom there will be a mini cable running off to each side. At the end of the tension adjuster is where you adjust it. Mine was very loose and I had to tighten it down quite a bit. It takes a 12 MM wrench. You will want to turn the wrench toward the passenger side to tighten it down. Hope this works for you.
