I'm looking for specific details on how to adjust the parking brake on a 2001 GAGT1 (Rear disc brakes). I haven't been able to find anything concrete.

Can anyone help?

I had no e brake for a long time, when I did my rear brakes a few months ago I just had to manualy adjust them by using the star adjustor. You need to take off the rotor and you'll see it. Make sure you use lots of brake clean to get rid of all the junk.

Do you use your E-Brake a lot? If you do the cable may be worn out. Not common but I have seen it happpen before.

They are "self Adjusting" Mine was all the way at the top and barely held the car, when I changed my rear rotors the ebrake came back to normal.
