Hi Jackie, 2010/2011 has drum brakes on the rear?
First up, check the rear brake shoes don't kneed adjusting, if you just adjust the handbrake, you end up with a handbrake thats not very good at holding you on a hill

SOURCE: hand break

The last comment is a but wrong. Let me explain why:

The pistions on the rear is ALL MR2s are not the push in type...You need a special tool to screw them in... You can rent the tool for free at your local AutoZone but they charge like a $55 dollar core charge...once you bring it back they refund your money. TRUST ME if you are gonna try this route you want that tool!!! I did a full brake and rotor job on my MR2 3 weeks ago and without that tool I would still be working on them ; )

Back to the brakes though...are you sure they ever really worked properly? The MR2s are notorious about "brake cable freeze" this is where the cable becomes locked in place and feels like its putting pressure on the pads when you engage it, but it really isn't. This happened to me last winter (and it seems to happen most often in the winter) but I haven't fixed it yet. I pulled up so hard on the lever that i snapped the cable in half when I tried to keep the MR2 from rolling.

You may need new cables. If you have someone apply the hand brake for you and you are watching from both sides of te rear of the car (with the wheels off) you should see where the cables attach to the back of the calipers on each side of the car. When it is being engaged you should see the cable pull on the lever on the back of each caliper. If this doesn't happen, then you are the victim of "brake freeze" and if it matters that much to you then you will need to have the bad cable or cables replaced.

Hope this helps! Good Luck!

SOURCE: hand break does not release

Big problem sounds like car has been left with handbrake on for a long period and not used,now they are stuck which is caused by damp corroding the drum which sticks the shoes to the drum.Old trick ------ release handbrake and try going backwards,shoes have a leading edge and lock into drum increasing braking efficiency for foreward motion but dont worry about the technicals just try it.If it still doesnt work call a mobile mechanic,What a tool though,i have a sovereign XJ6 4 litre and what a set of wheels i slow down at 200kms as anything over is now a automatic jail sentance here in spain ,but had some great burn offs with porches and mercs on the motorway with this car,but i couldnt outrun a helicopter though .

SOURCE: how to tighten uo the hand break cable on my bmw

You'll need to remove the center console that is over the hand brake. (screws and clips will most likely be hidden)
Once the console is off, you should be able to see two cables connecting to the base of the lever (one cable on the left of the lever and one to the right as these control the ebrake on their side of the car respectively.
Loosen the nut and you can shimmy the cable to tighten it.
Don't do it too tight or your ebrake may be engaged even though the lever is all the way down.

Adjust the parking break on a 2010 f-150?

Hi Jeff, Inspect the back plates of the brakes to see if there is a slot for inserting a feeler gauge. I would think there will be. Insert the feeler gauge into the slot and adjust until friction is felt on the blade. Adjust both rear brakes to the same clearance. Front Disc brakes are self adjusting (As should be the rear?)
