Brake Release..... Won't Release
The parking brake release rod is stuck... I believe in the "open" position, eg; I think it is pulled all the way out.
I can depress the parking brake, and I can release it manually with the lever on top of the mechanism. I haven't pulled it out, but I sprayed a bunch of greased lightning all up inside the mechanism but it won't budge. There's a bit of surface rust all over the parking brake mechanism, but it sets and releases (manually) just fine, I think something might be rusted shut, but I'm not sure what to look for. There's not a lot of room to look inside to see how it works unless I pull it.
Any tricks of the trade?
Anyone got a pic of how the catch / spring mechanism works?
Thanks in advance.
