HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

Ok, you will need to pull the rear rotors to check the thickness of the parking shoes and replace if needed. If ok, then you will need to adjust the parking brake cable and shoes. I have attached both procedures for you
