I just redid all four pads and changed the rotors in my car. I found the parking brake cable and followed it the whole way but could not find any adjustment screw along the line. Anyone know how I can tighten up my parking brake a little?

IIRC I think it is self adjusting

Usually parking brakes self adjust automatically after a few repetitions of use. If you've done that, check a shop manual (or Alldata) or before long, a more experienced member will chime in.

The park brake is adjusted automatically by cycling the park brake lever three times

I'll try that, thanx. Doesn't seem that lose but thought I'd try and tighten it

If it ain't broke don't fix it !
