    The rear brakes are self adjusting and should require no periodic adjustment. Prior to adjusting the handbrake inspect the rear brakes to ensure they are OK. The handbrake should apply in 5 to 7 "clicks", if not remove the center console if equipped and adjust the adjusting nut until the hand brake applies in 5 to 7 clicks.

    i had to do the same just undo the shifter and the overdrive button and cut those wires you will be just fine just make sure you put it back together correctly and use heat shrink tubing not wires connectors for they wont fit
