My name is Dennis and I can assist you to finding your parking brake adjustment location.
1) the adjustment is located so that you have to remove your center console floor finish panel (this is the drink holder).
2) raise your parking brake lever and gently pry the plastic tabs from the center console.
3) Once you can see the park brake lever you will see a nut that is turned to adjust the lever so that it has 5 clicks when it is applied.
Glad to be of assistance and thank you for using FixYa. Please rate the solution because I can learn from your rating (and it keeps my rating up to date). Thank you, Dennis

I just did mine today, and did not have this problem. I screwed the caliper back in (right side CCW, left side CW) using the autozone loaner tool. No problem once I figured out they were opposite. Did not touch the e-brake at all. They self adjusted as designed and everything works. You need to un-do the adjustment you made if you were able to reassemble.

if you have drum brakes you may have to pull the drum and check that the ajusters turn freely and ajust them up. if there disc brakes you may have a stuck caliper or a streched cable there should be an ajuster on the cable just turn it till your happy wilh the slack.

FIRST adjust rear brake starwheel while spinning tire FOWARD. then alongside drivers side of car find emergency brake cable adjustment (long threaded rod with nut) . hold one end of rod with vise-grips and turn nut until emer. brake cable has less slack in it. now go inside car and apply e-brake.you dont want the pedal to stop right away but u also dont want too much"travel" in the pedal.so about halfway is IDEAL. IMPORTANT- once the brake cable is adjusted and the car wont roll foward in gear with the brake on and applying a little "gas"-make sure with brake OFF that rear wheels turn freely. hope this helps.
