camry parking brake adjustment

hello
i just changed all the rotors and pads on my 07 camry and also relubed all the sliders and now my parking brake dose not work as well i live on a hill so i need it where is the best place to adjust it i saw the parking brake shoes they still had about 50-60% of life left and it worked grate bfor i also tried useing it 3 or 4 times and applying it and backing up thinking it may be like full size drum brakes with auto adjusters nothing seamed to improve it i didnt mess with anything with the parking brake when i did the rotors and pads so i think an adjustment would do fine im just not sure where it is to adjust it the parking brake is the one in the kick panel on the floor
any help?

Usually you just need to readjust the parking brake shoes, this is done through a hole in the front of the rotor so the rear wheels need to be off. But just in case you cable has stretched here is the whole procedure. DO NOT adjust the cable unless adjusting the shoes will not correct the problem. Always make sure the shoe adjustment is correct before messing with the cable.

First ADJUST PARKING BRAKE SHOE CLEARANCE
(a) Temporarily install the hub nuts.
(b) Remove the hole plug, and turn the adjuster and expand
the shoes until the disc locks.
(c) Contract the shoe adjuster until the disc can rotate
smoothly.
Standard : Return 8 notches
(d) Check shoe is no brake drag.
(e) Install the hole plug.you have to adjust the shoes at the drum.
(f) Check for proper Travel at pedal/lever.

ADJUST PARKING BRAKE PEDAL TRAVEL(PEDAL
TYPE PARKING BRAKE)
(a) Depress the parking brake pedal 3 notches to make a
room for the procedure, and loosen the lock nut on parking brake cable.
(b) Return the parking brake pedal to the original position.
(c) Turn the adjusting nut on parking brake cable until the parking brake pedal travel
is correct.
(d) Depress the parking brake pedal 3 notches to make a
room for the procedure, and tighten the lock nut on parking brake cable.
Torque: 5.4 NVm (55 kgfVcm, 48 in.Vlbf)
(e) Return the parking brake pedal to the original position.
(f) Check whether parking brake drags or not.
(g) When operating the parking brake pedal, check that the
parking brake pedal indicator light lights up.

ADJUST PARKING BRAKE LEVER TRAVEL(LEVER
TYPE PARKING BRAKE)
(a) Remove the console panel upper.
(b) Remove the air duct rear No. 1.
(c) Loosen the lock nut on parking brake cable and turn the adjusting nut until the lever
travel is correct.
(d) Tighten the lock nut.
Torque: 5.0 NVm (51 kgfVcm, 44 in.Vlbf)
(e) Install the air duct rear No.1.
(f) Install the console panel upper.

I hope this helps.
