HI, Might be worth undoing center console tensioner 1st and adjust drum after as you can make more adjustments at the drums.
Jack rear wheels up, you can do it one at a time and release hand brake with car in gear and wheels chocked.
Remove Wheel and take rubber bung out of drum.
Turn wheel until it is about 6 on a clock.
Use torch and shine in hole and you will see a cogg.
Place flat screw driver into slots on cogg and move screwdriver up or down,can't remember which way but you will feel the brake drum start to bind.

Get it to bind until you cannot turn brake drum.
Now release cogg 4 clicks and the drum shoe will be about 1mm gap.

Replace rubber bung and repeat on the other side.
Easy to do just hard to explain.

Parking Brake System.doc is the one you want. Other useful Manuals on there as well.

Adds some Pics to Richard's good advice above.

I'm kind of in the same position right now as well.

Just waiting for a free day to make the adjustment, also did the under console adjustment last year.
