The rear brakes of the Caravan are adjusted automatically. Each time you set the emergency brake slack will be taken up. You can speed up this readjustment while parked, engine off, by "pumping" the emergency brake while pulling out the brake release. Adjustment may take some time as the slack takeup is small with each use of the emergency brake. A good habit is to use the emergency brake at least twice a day to avoid a low parking brake pedal.
If the emergency brake is on the calipers, you need a special tool to compress the caliper. This should be rentable from the parts store.

Adjustment is either under vehicle (follow cables) or At the handle between seats Set paking brake at "3" clicks and check rear wheels for movement They should be locked at this point Or if if self-adjusting just back up and pull brake to stop car 3-5 times this may activate self-adjuster or slide calipers if rear disk type
Under the dash, either on the brake pedal's arm itself, or to the support structure.
