Emergency Brake Adjustment

Where is this adjustment located and how difficult is it to do? Do I need any special tools?

Haha... a little late on the reply but I rotated the tires today and noticed a lot of drag on the rear brakes. I'm not sure if this was because the vehicle was jacked up or not but I decided to adjust the emergency brake. I don't think the e-brake cable was to tight but after a few turns of the nut it gave me more range when I pull the lever back.

If you are still waiting for a reply DMZ the nut is on the back side of the e-brake handle where the cable attaches. All you do is remove the two screws at the bottom of the center console (in the storage area) to remove the console and you can't miss the adjustment.
