Question about 2002 Ford SVT Focus
The tightness of the handbrake is a function of the adjustmnent of the rear brakes. If the rear brakes are working properly, the handbrake adjustment will be correct. I would change the rear brake pads first, before I tried anything else. Worn pads or nonfunctioning adjusters are the likely culprit.
If you do not want to repalce the rear brakes, you can find the instructions for tightening the handbrake on a website called Focushacks.com. But, if you make the modification (I don't recommend it) you will have to change it back when you get around to changing the rear pads.
