You'll need to remove the center console that is over the hand brake. (screws and clips will most likely be hidden)
Once the console is off, you should be able to see two cables connecting to the base of the lever (one cable on the left of the lever and one to the right as these control the ebrake on their side of the car respectively.
Loosen the nut and you can shimmy the cable to tighten it.
Don't do it too tight or your ebrake may be engaged even though the lever is all the way down.

There is an adjustment nut on it. Turn right to tighten and left to loosen. If you need a free online repair manual for your car, then go to www.autozone.com and register for free.

You need to adjust the shoes inside the rear rotor/drum. There is a ratchet mechanism that should be accessible after wheel is removed through a small hole in rotor. Hole should line up at bottom ...six o;clock position...maybe small plug in hole that needs removed.
