Well. .mine is very tight ... and i never changed it.,.. so i odnt thing its a 5 gen thing. I think you tighten it from the E-brake handle itself.. But i could be wrong.. I never did it before.

no guys....in the 94-96's there is a panel inside the console. you tighten it by turning the 12 mil nut til its tight when pulled about 4 clicks up. on 92-93's you have to remove the console. not sure on whether or not you have to remove the console on the 5ths. but yea. there you go.

come on E. id expect you to know something as simple as that. im disappointed

Well I never took the time to see, lol. It's one of those things I just wanna complain about instead of actually do the troubleshooting myself, lol.

Remove your ebrake cover...

there will be a 12 or 10mm bolt you simply tighten or loosen the slack as you see the cable. . .

If this isn't the case, your rear spring that connects the rear "ebrake" to the brakes is off or broken.
