SOURCE: how much should brake repair be for a 1999 Subaru

Best thing to do is get on the phone and call an auto parts store and get a price on the parts you want to replace, than bump that up about 10% more or less witch is most likely a shop will do, and then take that and add the labor, witch averages around 60 to 70 bucks per hour at a independent shop and 80 to 100 bucks per hour at a dealer. They will chg. at least 4 hours. remember this is only a gessament and everyone chg. different, but its someware in the ball park. Depending on what the parts cost 500 to 600 dollars is not out of the realm of posabilitys. whole lot cheaper if you do it yourself.

SOURCE: driving with parking brake on

More likely than not you wore the parking brake pads down. The parking brake pads are seperate from the rear disc brakes. They are a drum style. The rear rotars are designed to work as both drum and disc.
I would say in 20 miles you did little no no damage to drivetrain.
Typically when you get a brake job they will adjust the parking brake shoes. It is extremly easy if you have already gone and removed the brake calipers. Essentially you pull off the rotor (you would need a tool for this called a puller. not expensive, maybe $10. Something somone doing your brakes would have. Once the rotars are off you just turn a star gear.
This might add $15-20 to a standard brake job. Maybe $50 if the shoes need to be replaced.

SOURCE: where are the rear brake lines located on 1998

If you take off the rear wheels, you should see the rubber lines (if stock) with metal ends connected to the brakes and running up the wheel well. They are not too difficult to replace if need be.

How to free 2001 subaru forester parking brake


Most likely you have two problems. The park brake cables can rust under the car, and jam, usually where they pass into the brake assembly. Replacement is required.

The park brake assembly (drum or drum-in-disk) are more or less the same, and small internal bits (springs and clips) rust and wear out.

Replacing the cables requires the brake assembly to be opened up for inspection anyway.
