    get a flashlight and look all the way up on the brake pedal bracket. You'll see the yellowish plastic rod coming out of the switch. It automatically adjusts to the brake pedal when it hits the rod. Depress your brake pedal, take a flathead screwdriver and easily pry on the rounded part of the rod. This will extend the rod out so when the brake is released it will hit the brake pedal.

    I recently had to do the same thing because my brake lights were not working. Pretty easy to do and understand. If you have any questions reply back on this thread and i'll post pics. Hope that helps.
