This isn't uncommon; some parking brake setups may cause the shoes to drag on the drum while trying to remove it. If your parking brake has been ineffective in recent times, the cable may be rusted in place. Try putting the hand brake on HARD (**** on it), then releasing it several times to break the friction that may be present. If this doesn't work, try doing the same thing at each wheel.
If this still doesn't free the drum, use a hard plastic or brass hammer to tap firmly on the outside of the drum, rotating it as you go.

I need to change my rear break pads and also my emergency brake will not dissengage once put on. How do i fix both?


My hyundai had the emergency brake bracket (mounted to the back of the caliper) rust solid. I used rust eater to get it to slightly break loose. I eventually had to replace both calipers. It is a very consistant problem. My new ones need alot of attention now as well I covered them in caliper paint to help with the rusting. The pads are very simple replacement 2 bolts on the back of the caliper. Remove the pads then screw back in the piston with a import tool from any auto parts store put pads back in, put back on the caliper.
