    you mean adjust the ebrake?

    go to the ebrake shoes (rear tires )

    - remove adjusting hole cover from back plate...

    - turn adjusting screw (using screwdriver) until the e-brake shoe is nearer to the rotor....

    - turn back the adjusting screw 3-4 notches (down)

    - put the cover back in place


    to adjust the lever?
    - take the center console lid off

    - turn the adjuster (according to the service manual, turn the adjuster until the brake lever stroke is set at 6 notches....)

    - tighten the lock nut....

    - put the center console lid back on


    good luck!!!
