My car is a 1995 Oldsmobile Achieva S 4 door V6 3.1L. I need to know where the adjustment is for the parking brake. When I push the petal to put the parking brake on, the petal goes to the floor and the brake still doesn't keep the car from rolling. I need to know where to adjust the parking brake.

    The rear brake shoes need to be checked FIRST!! If they are in good shape, they need to be properly adjusted which should take care of the park brake as well.
