Underneath your vehicle, a steel threaded cable comes from the back of one hub and is joined by a short cable from the other hub--then the original cable runs to a threaded end with an adjuster nut in it--and one smaller nut on the end outside of that--(this is the equalizer bar)--you'll see it real close to your transmission. You might have to jack-up the back of the vehicle??? Pull the parking brake lever up sharply and then release it. Pull the parking brake lever to the second click and leave it there. You're looking for a slight drag of the brake shoes when you spin the wheels. To increase the drag, get under at the equalizer bar and turn the adjusting nut to take up the slack in the cables. Get out and spin the rear wheels if you think it's to tight. I will say don't be afraid to crank on it for a while as in this case, a little adjustment really does not go a long way. When you think you have the drag right, go back in the car and pull the brake up the the fourth click. At this point the wheels should be locked and you should not be able to turn them even when trying hard. If you can, tighten them up a little more. Once you've done this, release the brake and make sure the wheels spin freely. If they are still binding due to the parking brake, back off the adjustment a little. And that's basically the whole adjustment procedure.

How do you adjust the parking brake on a 93 Geo Prism?

Assuming the parking brake is a similar style to that on my 1995 Prizm, this is a very easy fix. Start by removing the center shrowd which surrounds the parking brake. There will be screws holding it in place on either side in the front, as well as underneath the carpet in the little storage area. Once all fasteners are out, with the help of a screwdriver you can pry this shrowd off. The brake handle attatches to the end of a wire with two nuts: the bottom one adjusts the brake (right/tight, left/loose) and the nut on top locks the lower one in place. After fidgiting with it for a few minutes, you should be able to figure out how tight to make it and be able to reassemble the cover.
