Parking brake

Well tried looking in my haynes book today to see if there was something on adjusting the parking brake but all I can find is the adjustment for the trucks with rear drum brakes and I have the disc brakes in the back. Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions or even a possible write up. Anything would help I can mash the thing to the floor right now and with a trailer its like nothings holding it back from rolling.

I have discs in the rear as well. The easiest way I've found to adjust the parking brake is to remove the caliper and rotor. You will see an adjustment knob inside there. It is connected to the pads and can be adjusted with your fingers. I forget which way you have to twist it to push the pads outward, but you will be able to see it move as you twist the knob. Don't adjust it too much at a time or you'll find out that the disc wont go back on easily. This is caused by the parking brake pads rubbing the inside of the disc. Hope this helps.

Is this for both wheels in the back or just the drivers side?
