your e brake is sticking

Gotta love the lovely drum e-brake setup. :roll:
i havent used my e brake in 2 years, it cant hold the car, and if it ever does it sticks and i have to rock back and forth 50 times to get it undone.
I have the same problem, spray wd40 or PB Blaster in the inside lever, New cable permanently fixes it.
I did a new ebrake cable on mine, turns out I probably should have replaced the right rear ebrake shoes since they don't seem to be doing shit.
Thanx guys that what I was assuming but I would rather not jump into it if it was something eles
As just a random side note I almost sh*t myself the first time it happend I was reversing pretty quick and its locked up i thought I had hit a rock or even a kid (I was vacuming out my car at the was) let's just say I was happy to fing out it was just the ebreak :)
