The e-brake I belive is drum style in the rear. There is a little bit of adjustment that can be done there, but if I remember right most of the adjustment you do form the e-brake handle itself in the car.

Sorry I don't have better info, my friend had this issue is fixed it himself, he told he it was needed adjusted.

Your ebrake/park brake ratchet is broken. Maybe the spring popped out or the prawl broke.

I have an 04 m6 as well and the same thing happened to me about 3 weeks ago, i took it apart to see what was wrong and there is a green plastic piece that was broken, not a big fix, just try to find another one from someone parting out a gto.
