    someone else may correct me, but it looks as though after liberaly spraying penetrant, the nut on the right will pull the cable in. Tightening the brake.

    The adjustment is NOT on the cable.... you have to remove the rear rotors and manually adjust.... your parking brake shooes could be bad, bad rotor, or frozen cable or something else....

    I don't think there is an adjustment at the pedal either....
