HOW DO YOU ADJUST THE PARKING BRAKE?

2008 Dodge Nitro • 45,000 miles

When I apply the parking brake, it fails to hold the car securely. I've had the brakes themselves adjusted. I believe the problem is too much slack in the cable that connects the e-brake handle to the brakes (when you apply the e-brake, there is very little resistance). Do you know how to adjust the e-brake cable? I've read verious posts online that indicate its a difficult process and many dealers don't even know how to do it. Thanks in advance for your reply.
