I don't know about your specific vehicle...

But usually there is a cable going from the brake lever or pedal to the rear brakes. And many times under the vehicle there are nuts you can adjust. Or at the lever. Maybe at the brake pedal in some cases?

Just follow that cable and somewhere along that cable you should see adjustment nuts.

With vehicle manufacturers, there is no consistent way they design things, so it could be some other way!

This might be in a 3rd party service manual sold at auto parts stores.

And for sure this would be a factory service manual which you can order from your dealer. If you are going to keep this vehicle awhile and want to work on it yourself, good to get one of these as they explain how to fix everything.

In some cases books are sold separately. Service manual, fuel and emissions (engine computer and tuning), electrical diagrams, etc. I use all the books.

Do yourself a favor..Before you go after the parking brake cable, make SURE the service brakes are properly adjusted.
