so when my dad owned the car like 2 years ago, he got stuck at work one night because the e brake locked up.
we added an extra spring which helped for awhile, but i really just never used the e brake.
today, it got so damn stuck it wasnt even funny. after releasing the handle in the car the drivers side cable was still absolutely taught to the point that if i tried to back up the tire would just drag.
i hammered and pulled on the cable and the piece the cable connects to with no luck and wound up just cutting it so i could drive.
is this all a function of a cable binding or is it something in the shoe and release spring behind the rotor? or do i need rear rotors?
id like to just replace the cables, but im afraid this will still happen, yet dont want to just replace every damn part in there.
