yep, the ebrake is auto adjusting. So there is a big coil spring in the middle of it. You reach under the van by the drivers door and grab the cable where it come out the other end. Pull it out and clamp a vise grip or something on it. When you get to the right spot, you should be able to wedge a screw driver or punch in the auto adjuster to hold it in place. Then remove the vise grip and you'll have plenty of slack.
