Climb under your car, unbolt the the drive shaft tunnel heat shield. Slide it out of the way, and you'll the 2 e-brake cables and what they attach to. Grab a size 10mm wrench and adjust the nut to get the desired cable tension.

suggest you first ensure that the rear caliper ebrake cams are moving all the way to their stops when engaging and releasing the emergency brake - otherwise you may be adjusting your way into an eventual cooked rear wheel bearing from a stuck caliper
