If you've ever adjusted drum brakes its the same thing. just pull off your rear rotors and you'll see the E brake is just a small drum brake.

The rear brakes on our cars have a drum INSIDE the disk. Pretty sweet huh? :D
If you remove the caliper, you will see a little knob in between the bottom of the e-brake shoes. When you pull the e-brake, the cable pulls on this little unit and forces the brake shoes apart. The adjustment knob sets a preload on them........ I think. LOL
Never actually done it, but i was looking at it about 2 days ago :jest:
That's all there is too it, just adjust that little wheel until you can just barely get the disc back on.
