The parking brake soes not provide any braking effect. I apply the footbarke, then the parking brake pedal and the mechanism seems to be working okay. When I release the parking brake there is a release of tension, so I imagine it is only an adjustment problem. If that is so, how and where do I adjust the parking brake?

Inspect the parking brake shoes first if the parking cable feels O.K. Remove the rear rotors for inspection and let me know how they look. Replace if they are worn out.
