You will have to look under the side panel, and you can release it with a screw driver, or get a pair of vise grips to pull the cable to release it.

I found that loosening the bolts on the inside of the tailgate made the job a little easier. Don't remove them. I could get to the trim piece from the inside to make sure I didn't break it. Pep Boys does sell the small package of clips for about $1.00. Make sure you don't break the clip and hope it works anyway like I did and ended up doing the job twice. I should have bought a second package of clips.

SOURCE: parking brake release
There should be a manual release. Reach up along the parking brake pedal. Ford has a manual lever that you pull toward yourself to release the parking brake. Hope this helps our with your problem. Best of luck.

The disc brake pads are NOT used for the parking brake. The parking brake uses mini-drum type shoes inside the rear disc rotor.
