Well over the course of the year, i've noticed that my E-Brake has been grabbing higher and higher. When i first purchased the Evo, it wouldn't move on any hill past 4 clicks or so. Now i'm starting to reach the top of the lever and it's grabbing worst and worst by the day. Any way to adjust it?

I know on the old Evo's, there was a tensioner type of adjustment underneath the arm rest console.

Adjuster

3.Remove the rear brake disc adjusting hole plug. Then insert a flat-tipped screwdriver to turn the adjuster to the arrow direction (to expand the shoe) until the parking brake shoe makes contact and the disc can no longer be turned. Back off the adjuster to the opposite direction by five notches.​
Be careful that the parking brake lever notch number should be within the standard range. If the notch number is too low, rear brake dragging can be caused.​
4.Adjust the parking brake lever stroke to the standard value by turning the adjusting nut. After adjustment, check that there is no free play between the adjusting nut and the parking brake lever.
5.After adjusting the parking brake lever stroke, release the parking brake. Then turn the rear wheels to check that the rear brakes are not dragging.​
6.Install the floor console box cup holder. (Refer to GROUP 52A − Floor Console Assembly P.52A-9.)

I've asked my dealership to tighten the e-brake twice, and they did it w/ no questions asked. Took them about 10 minutes.
