Default How do I adjust the parking break of my 2004 Honda Civic Lx?

Hi I have an 04 Honda Civic Lx with disc brakes and I was wondering how i can tighten the e-brake? The first inch and a half or so you pull doesn't click its just loose and wiggles around when I hit bumps and stuff. It has about 7 clicks but it skips the first like 5... I tried taking the middle console out to get the cables that way but I have no idea how to do it... I removed 4 screws from the rear end of it, didnt think I needed to get the ones up front by where the fuses go, but the middle console would not come out. Ive read in many places you can drive in reverse with the e-brake pulled but I dont know if thats for drum brakes only or what. Worst case scenario if no one knows how to get the middle console off, does anyone know how to tighten them from underneath the car? Any help would be appreciated!

The driving in reverse only works for drum brakes on the rear wheels, not e-brakes.

You may want to have the brake cable replaced.

Center console has to be removed to gain access to adjustments,, there should be 2 or 4 hidden screws inside the storage compartment..
