You will need to remove the rear rotors in order to access the parking brake adjustment. Chances are the parking brakes are completely worn down, and the rotors will need to be replaced. The 2000-2001 Tahoes are notorious for sticking parking brakes. The Tahoe utilizes a drum style brake pad located inside the hat of the rear rotors. There is a fairly tight tolerance between the parking brake and the drum portion of the inside of the rotor. There is a cogged nut that can be spun to adjust the diameter of the parking brake assembly. The following is likely the cause of premature parking brake failure. The driver side has a lever located on the inner part of the brake assembly. On the driver side the lever has a protrusion that can get stuck against the back of the brake assembly when actuated. The protrusion serves no purpose, and there is a Chevy TSB that recommends grinding it off.
