The parking brake mechanism is simple, there are 2 disc pads on opposite side of the rotor, that pushes against the rotor when you apply the parking brakes.
Basically, the rotor should not be spinning when you apply the brakes.
Remove the rear tire, and if you are able to spin the rotor with your bare hands with the parking brakes applied, then it needs adjusting.
It is pretty simple to adjust, just follow the service manual (PB-4), I am attaching that section, but I recommend you get the service manual and open the section PB, it will tell you how to adjust it with a screwdriver.
This is when I was changing my brake pads, you can see the 2 disk pads after I removed the rotor, and the spring that holds the wheel you need to turn UP/DOWN with a flat head screwdriver to adjust.
