SOURCE: Handbrake Adjustment
On the Toyota, you can do it two ways: The easiest is to push in on the release button on the lever and move the lever up and down twenty or thirty times while the vehicle is slowly moving forward. A long driveway or parking lot is best for this. Or, there is an adjusting nut at the end of the park brake cable under the handle. If you pull the handle up, you should be able to see it down inside the center console on the bottom side of the handle. Turn the nut clockwise a turn or two.
The daewoo is anyone's guess. I've never even seen one.

i think you'll have to look at the piece of felt under the casette holder lid , lift the felt up using a very fine flat ended screw driver and there should be a couple of bolts under there !
if yes , then take the lid off also , another two philips head screws . if its the same as the centre console of the 1998 model !!
now , having removed the bolts , gently lift the rear end of the centre console , with a torch you should be able to see the adjuster .
Make sure the hand brake is down , so put bricks under one or both of the front wheels and leave it in gear , also , do this on a flat surface !!!!
Adfter you've done the adjustment , before putting everything back together , put the console into normal position and try putting handbrake on and off , it should feel firm to lock the back brake ! then if all is okay , put the screws back in reverse order good luck

if you follow the cable there will be a turn buckle at some point turn it until the slack is correct it is most likely under the vehicle before the two cables meet usually halfway down the body or directly under the driver seat along the frame

If you remove the rear wheels, through the bolt holes in the disc you should find a toothed wheel which needs to be turned with a screwdriver until the disc cannot be turned, then back off 6 teeth to prevent over adjustment and binding. (you can adjust the cables inside but this only takes up the slack and doesnt adjust the handbrake correctly) once they have been adjusted check the balance by driving gently forward and backwards whilst applying the handbarke and watching which side of the car reacts first then adjust the other side via the cable inside the car
