Question about 2005 Hyundai Elantra
HAND BRAKE RELEASES BUT REAR BAKES WILL NOT
Check the cable to ensure it hasn't been stretched. Does it have tension on it when you release it? It should have. A stretched cable will often engage the parking brake, but not release it. This is due to the condition of your hardware in the drum itself. I recommend removing the brake components and either replacing them, or cleaning and greasing them to restore proper function. Check for cracked/broken springs and worn surfaces of course. Sometimes the hangers and mounts for the cable break off or become loose. Inspect those for rust/corrosion. Please remember to use wheel chocks and safety stands when under a vehicle.
