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.
yep. losen the screw a little bit. i did the opposite of u recently. mine was too loose. and above the scree is this stupid clip. i broke it trying to pull it off, but mine handle isnt become tiger or looser, so i guess u dont need it.
