Usually the adjustment is in the cables, either at the e-brake handle or at the caliper. I don't know of an adjustment on the caliper itself. Take a look at each rear caliper and see if it looks like something is broken off or missing. Something integral to the system may have just flat out broken off.

SOURCE: handbrake problem
hi fro uk when you reassembled brake shoes? did you notice the tubular bar just below b/cylinder? it fits between the two shoes and has a toothed wheel on the treaded side(l/h) this is the auto adjuster ie as tooth wheel is rotated it extends the treaded side thus adjusting shoes to drum o/k? this is normally done auto by the small lever below but when fitting new shoes you must adjust this rod with tooth wheel and keep trying drum fitting when you can fit drum /just? fit and press brake to centralise shoes to drum then adjust again if req'd so that drum fits and rotates withh shoes not binding ?? do both sides THENyou willdrums fitted you will feel b/pedal is improved ie less travel on braking ? SO FIRST THING YOU HAVE TO DO IS SLACKEN OFF H/BRAKE CABLE ADJUSTMENT /SLACK ? then proceed with the above instruction afterwards if you do as above then you pull h/brake up one notch ? then adust slack from cable to light tension release h/brake and ensure wheels rotate freely when you apply h/brake it should hold on approx four//five notch ? hope this helps

Take the caliper apart and grease the Slide pins. There are two of them. When these get dried out it cause them to stick and not release the brake. When you pull the two halves of the caliper apart there will probably be dust in there. Clean it out and grease them up.

The hand brake hardly ever needs ajusting. See your hand brake mechanincly spreads your rear brake shose inside the drum. Therefore just replace your rear shoes and make sure there ajusted right and you should have no more problems with that part of your car. PS make sure you put some 3M paste on the contact points on your backing plate to avoid a squeak in the near future.

While replacing REAR CALIPERS Park Brake Should NOT BE APPLIED Until Completely DONE with PROCEDURE,Nor Should it be Released During Procedure. As isogeorge Said Your Problem MAY Be in the Adjustment of the PARK BRAKE CABLE, Requiring removal of Rubber BOOT @ HANDBRAKE and Tightening or Loosening of Cable whichever you deem Appropriate. In My Thoughts it is too tight thus Engaging PARK BRAKE SWITCH turning ON LIGHT. PLEASE Feel FREE to Refer Back to Me For ANY Assistance with this Problem, Hope this Gets you on the right Track and Solves your Problem.
