Is the emergency brake sticking or just loose? If it'* sticking then you can try to lubricate it in the area it'* sticking. Repeat the process everyday untill the problem is resolved. If this doesn't resolve the problem then replace the section that has the problem. I believe that year is a 4 piece system. If it'* in need of adjustment then look on the drivers side just underneathe the drivers seat along the edge of the car for the adjustment.

You should be able to do a simple adjustment to tighten the cable up

Why is this in Performance and Brainstorming? This sounds like a mechanical issue. I'll move your topic for you. Please read the individual descriptions at the top of each section.

Under the car, near the driver'* seat, you'll see an adjustment point. This is a link on the parking brake system.

If you read through the various sections, it includes information on how to adjust each individual caliper to be certain they are working properly. As for adjusting the cable, yes...tighten at the adjustment point tightens the cable.
