I think what you are asking is if you can loosen it so that you have to pull it up farther to engage it. If thats the case, there is a screw on the left side of the handle near the back of it that you can tighen and loosen to adjust how much you need to pull the lever in order to engage the break. It is pretty easy to access if you remove your center console. that requires you taking the screws out from under the cupholders and there is one in the back that has a cap on in. you also need to remove the center armrest if you have one. pull the plastic piece off the back, and remove the two screws and you should be good to go. if you have any questions, shoot me a pm, and ill take some pics for you.

^^The boot around the ebrake snaps out. You don't have to take out the center console to adjust it.

However, if for some reason you did need to change the handle assembly, you would need to remove the center console.

It does sound like it just needs a little adjustment.

yea, you can definately do it by removing the boot. i just was lazy and took the whole thing out (i know that doesnt seem like the lazy way, but it was easier for me)
