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
