You don't. You replace the worn out rear break shoes. If that doesn't do it you need to replace the stretched E brake cable.

Gosh, I hate to respond when I'm not really sure, but most parking brakes adjust either at the rear of the handle in the cab, (remove the plastic console to get at it) or at the rear of the car where the cable that activates the parking brake is located. My suggestion is to pick up a Chilton or Haynes manual at your local parts store. It will describe and show you in detail how to do it. FriPilot

I don't have my Haynes manual at hand, but if memory serves, that switch is down on the transmission. If you pick up a Haynes or Chilton manual, it will show you where it is and how to adjust or replace it.

There is an adjustment screw on the side of the throttle body that adjusts how open the throttle body sits.
