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.

Continually push the brake pedal to set the brakes. (With park brake off). Brakes are self adjusting and will adjust to correct position.

I think if the self adjusters are working properly you should be able to push the parking brake pedal (e-brake) to the floor once and release pedal. .
