94 EMERGENCY BRAKE STUCK

1994 Saturn Other

Daughter has 94 Saturn and the emergency brake is stuck on the brake pads. THe handle moves up and down engaging and releasing the parking brake but the passenger rear is not releasing, meaning it is staying engaged keeping the wheel locked.

Tried to pull off drum today but it obviously would not come off. Does the emergency brake have a mechanical switch/lever to release the tension?

Or what other ideas are there to release the brake?

Thanks,
Bryan

The rear brake shoes have an adjuster that can be backed off. There is a access hole on the backing plate. Insert a brake tool and a small screwdriver and loosen the star adjuster for the brake shoes so you can remove the drum.
Let us know what you find. : )
