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

there should be an adjusting screw around the lever that is used to apply the parking brake. if you tighten this until there is a slight drag in the back tires and then back off two full turns then that will adjust the parking brake.

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 pull the plug in the braka adjusting tool and make sure you still have enought shoe left to adjust then follow the cable from the rear brakes to the Y that connets the to brake cables then get a wire brush and brush off the threded end of the Y spray with WD 40 and then unlock the locking nut using two wrenches to hold one nut while removing the other then adjust the single end of the Y nut towards the joining part of the Y adjust it till cable is fairly snug jack up the rig so the wheels are off the ground and make sure the wheels still turn freely. are you sure that the auto ajusters are working? if you see the brake lining is less than 1/16 of an inch the thickness of a dime then replace the brake shoes first. If you need more information let me know and if you adjust the cable and need to replace the shoes later you will have to back off the nut to get the shoes on. thanks for using Fixya and if this was helpful please rate.
