There's adjuster screws on the e-brake pedal assy. Take a look under there.

Also, you may want to check the rear brakes, sometimes poor e-brake holdings is indicative of the rears needing replacement.

The parking brake is a shoe assembly inside the rear disc hub & does not work with the service brakes that stop the car.
To adjust the parking brake, there is a 10mm nut on the top of the parking brake pedal. Tighten that untill the pedal goes down no more that 6 clicks from the top.
The cables tend to streach real bad. I check mine for adjustment every time it's serviced.
