I searched, but didn't find anything. Is there a way to re-tighten my parking break? Would it be covered under bumper-to-bumper?

I pull it up every time I park (my driveway is a steep hill) and lately the car still sags (rolls a bit) after pulling it. If that makes sense...Thanks

at least, what is the process really called so I can google for a how-to?

Yes there is a way to re-tighten it. Pull up on the parking break and remove the piece of trim that is around it, its the one with the change holder. On the underside of the parking break handle there is a tab that you need to push in and at the same time it is pushed in you pull the handle of the parking break off. There is a nut next to the base of the parking break that you tighten and that will tighten your parking break.

There is a screw on the handle that you have to tighten... but you must pull the rear wheel so you can check to make sure it isn't dragging.

Just jack up the rear of the car spin the wheel by hand
and adjust the cable on the e-brake lever and spin again.
YOU DO NOT WANT THE BRAKE DRAGGING !
