Default 06 ebrake!

Helloooooo everyone in the north west! I've tried to search but failed so I'm resorting to posting a question. How do I tighten my ebrake from the back tires? I have an 06 wrx sedan. If anyone could lead me in the right direction or help me out, would be awesome thank you everyone in advance

Remove the center console.

You'll see a curved threaded rod, connected to a plate that has 2 wires coming out of it.

Tighten the nuts on the threaded rod. If it already is past 60-70% of adjustment, then it may be some issue with the drum style ebrakes in the back.

Here is a pic that shows the handle, with the adjuster, etc...

There will be a rectangle rubber plug on the back side of the knuckle. Behind that will be a star adjuster. Turn it with a small pry bar or flathead. That tightens the e brake shoes

It should. Most of them are on the bottom but some subarus have them on the top of the backing plate/knuckle. Take a look around and let me know if you still need help
