If it's anything like my old 93 Sable, you will have to disconnect the parking brake cable from the caliper before you can retract the piston. You should be able to do this with rudimentary tools - screwdriver, pliers. Also, the pistons on those type of calipers will NOT compress back into the cylinder. You will need to get a piston-retracting tool from your car parts store. These types of pistons need to be screwed back in by getting this tool and using a ratchet to press & turn at the same time. Have a swear jar and a few bandaids handy.

I've done it and hated every minute of it.
Get a quality brake piston rotator tool. The Autozone 5 sided cube is no good.
you will have to spin the piston back about 4-5 turns until it fully retracts.
The expanding/ 500lb pressure clamps do no good b/c the brake is like a hydraulic screw. You can't compress this type of brake.
Starting the rotation of the piston back will require two people
1 to hold the tool and ratchet on the piston, the other to turn the ratchet.

If the car has a center console between the seats, and the e-brake lever is there, remove the console there should be a bolt to tighten or loosen. Loosen it with the lever DOWN, pull the cable as tight as it will go with your hand and a pair of pliers. Holding the cable in place tighten the bolt or nut that secures the cable. If this doesn't fix it, have your rear brakes inspected and/or adjusted.
