Do you mean just release it? or remove the cable from the caliper? the way i took mine off the caliper was I had someone pull on the spring with pliers and i used a flat head screw driver to un hook the loop

SOURCE: Buick Regal brakes

28-DEC-08
Sometimes (when changing the brake calipers on disk brakes, or changing wheel cylinders on drum brake systems) the mechanic will clamp a vise grip pliers on the rubber hose to prevent hydraulic fluid from dripping out.  This can break the internal fiber lining in the rubber hose.  Then the fluid flow can be blocked.  When you press the brake pedal, fluid may not flow to the wheel or wheels.  As you press harder, the fluid may suddenly flow through the line, causing the brakes to suddenly activate.  
Or an even more likely problem, your brakes drag (stay on) and get hot, because the fluid cannot flow back to the master cylinder when you release the brake pedal.  In other words, when you press the brake you force fluid through a partially blocked rubber hose.  But the return of the fluid (backwards through the rubber hose) is caused not by pressure, but just by equilibrium, a balancing act.  Well, if the line (rubber hose) is blocked, the fluid stays in the caliper or wheel cylinder, and the brake is still on, and the brake gets hot.

SOURCE: 1991 buick regal starting and running problem

Sounds like your car is overheating. If you have a temp gauge it should show that. If you just have an idiot light, by the time it comes on it's already too hot to operate. AFTER the car is cooled down, open the radiator cap to see how much coolant has been lost. Chances are there is alot missing. Add WATER (no sense in adding coolant if it's going to leak out) and idle the car at home. Look underneath as it warms up to find where the leak is.

SOURCE: parking lights work third brake light works,just not back brakes?

The bulbs do not need to be replaced! The answer to this problem is believe it or not in the turn signal lever, or multi-function switch. It is extremely common on these cars, and usually mis-diagnosed. Try this before going any farther. Back the vehicle up to a wall, or have a person stand behind the car, and pull the turn signal lever slightly towards you as if you were switching between hi and low beams. I guarantee that when you put just a little pressure on the lever your brake lights will work. If you want the problem fixed, you need to have the switch (and lever arm) replaced from inside the steering column, and you need someone to remove the airbag to do this. The switch is roughly $200 from an aftermarket parts store. If you learn to drive your car and just know that when you brake you can pull back on the lever to make the lights work great, I did for a few years in mine. But I guarantee that is the answer to your problem

My 1998 buick regal ls will not come out of park ... sometimes will not start, when it does start it still gets stuck in park sometimes


Neutral Safety Switch may be out of rotational adjustment on the column.
And'/Or the Brake Switch is bad and is causing the Park lock to not release when pressing on the brake pedal.

Parking brakes dont work


89 regals are notorious for bad brake design. Especially rear disc brakes. The calipers get hung up, and you end up with premature brake pad/rotor wear. The parking brake, when applied, squeezes the caliper against the disc, hence keeping the car still. If the caliper is frozen, when you push the emergency brake, it can't squeeze the caliper anymore than it is.
OR, the parking brake cable needs adjustment. Have a mechanic look over your rear brakes and parts.

2003 Buick Regal stuck in park automatic transmission


check and see if the brake lights work, if not that is the problem (poss switch at brake pedal), the park position is locked out by a small pin that is pulled back by a electric solenoid that is activated when you step on the brakes, it is called the park interlock, and is a safety feature, if the brake lights do work you will need to drop the steering column and test for pwer to the park pull solenoid I just mentioned above, check the owners manual as well on this issue.
