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

Hi how do you adjust the hand brake on a 2004 jeep cherokee extreme sport

Once you have removed the center console, you should be able to see the base of the hand brake. There should be a bold which you can adjust to tighten or loosen the cable. While at it take time to check for the condition of the cable. Check for wear and have it replaced. Adjustment of the handbrake may work for a while with a damage cable but may break when you least expected.

How do you replace the parking brake cable on a 1993 Chrysler New Yorker after replacing the brake shoes and rear wheel cylinder

Generally you should not have to replace the parking brake cable. It should have an adjustment to give more slack or takle up slack as needed. Get a Haynes manual (around $20 at autozone) for your car. It will tell you how to adjust the parking brake cable and/or how to replace the cable if that is needed. In most cases it is just an adjustment that is needed

How to adjust handbrake cables.

Under the console, the single cable to the handle joins to an equalizer which connects to the two cables going to the rear brakes. There is no adjustment in that area. The adjustment to the cable doesn't exist. Each rear parking brake is adjusted in drag only.
