Wondering how easy this is to do for someone not so technical with cars?

If it's easy enough can someone give me some advice in what is needed to be done.

Cars rolling back when clicked up one or two and never used to.

is it disks on the rear?

 

If so, there should be an adjustment screw somewhere around the centre hub, it should be a case of handbrake off, car chocked, and a few flicks of the wrist with a screwdriver on either side. This will then tighten the handbrake for you, but make sure you do equal tightening on both sides to ensure a non bias breaking.

ah OK, in which case its a different process, I think you have to get under the car and with the handbrake down and get at the adjustment nut on the underside rear of the drum, then tighten this up, or at least I believe thats the case with the modern drums?

Your cars too new to have to be messing around with the brakes yourself, take it back to the dealer & let them sort it our.

Remove the drum (with a good hit with a hammer)
You will see an adjuster at the top just below the wheel cylinders on that there is a ring which if you look you will see only turns one way,
Use a flat screwdriver to turn that ring a couple of turns until when you put the drum back on and spin it, it will stop within 5 seconds, reeat on the other side.
Also a good idea to take a bit of emory paper and clean up rhe shoes and remove any lip from the drum
