Does anyone know how to adjust the hand brake cable. I had the brake adjusted, but the emergency brake will not hold the car on an incline. I pull the brake handle all the way up, but it is close to holding the car.

Thanks Chris, i was hoping there was a way to adjust the cable, it appears it needs to be shorter. When I pull the handle it travels all the was up. I read about pulling the handle up 3timws, but that didn't work. I guess the break shoes are not self adjusting as tou back up.

So how do you get to this, from underneath or do you remove anything from the in side?

if you pull on the park brake lever and it does not click this could be the problem, if it clicks then its working. i removed the pass seat and console to remove lever and the boot, its on the lever assembly. it only engages when you pull up on the lever.hope this helps.
