The only trick is banging it off. Drums are known to be "frozen" on or stuck. Honestly, the only way to get them off when they are stuck is to carefully hammer it off. Below is what is required to remove and replace the drum....and a picture of your system:

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.

How do I release a stuck parking brake on a 02 Le Sabre

Verify that the foot pedal has returned to its off position. Lube with WD-40 all connection areas of the parking brake cable especially where it enters cable shielding. Remove rear tires, beat all around outside of brake drums to release brake springs. Remove drums, clean all spring assemblies with brake cleaner and free parking brake cable assembly with spray lube then coat with fresh grease. Replace hubs, check for proper operation, if so re install wheels.

Rear passenger brake is hanging up any ideas

Do you have drum or disc rear brakes? If drum, the wheel cylinder probably needs to be replaced. If the wheel has overheated at any time, you should also replace the hardware (springs, etc) as they can lose their ability to retract the shoes if overheated. If disc brakes on rear, then the caliper is probably to blame. Has the brake fluid ever been changed? Fluid absorbs moisture (never use brake fluid from an open or not tightly sealed container). After rebuilding or replacing the caliper or wheel cyl. bleed all 4 wheels to flush out old fluid, otherwise you may have other wheels w/ brakes dragging/not releasing. Let me know if this doesn't fix it, I'll help further.

Our car has been sitting parked for the past 8 months, today we tried to move it and the back brakes are locked, and the back wheels will not move? What could be the cause of this?

The bracke drum / Hand brake cable is stuck . Try to hammer the rear wheel centre and if the brake drum is stuck it wiill be released .
Also the cable of hand brake is stuck . try puling the hand lever of the hand brake up and down many times this may free it .

Rear left wheel locks and skids...drum brakes...

You could have a parking brake cable sticking, or just your rear brake is over adjusted. Rear brakes can be adjusted in, and after the rear drum is removed, the parking brake cable should be checked to see if it moves in and out. Replace if needed!

When I apply the brakes on my '02Dakota only the forward brake shoe moves against the drum. Have replaced wheel cylinder but makes no difference. Both shoes move when I loosen adjuster cable. Have this...

you mean parking brake cable? loosen parking brake cables put drums on , and adjust shoes till they lightly drag, now apply brakes a few times and check the adjustment again, if all ok, now adjust park brake cables, you want to adjust so park pedal goes 5-8 clicks till the wheels are "locked up" and the wheels spin free with the park brake off

Parking break lever stuck

most likely the brake cables have seized up- it is best just to change them, if you do get the handle to move it may cause the brake to stick on and will warp and ruin your back brakes-best way to tell is to disconect the cable from the rear drums, which involves taking the rear drums and bearings off.hope this helps and good luck

Back brake drum won't go back on

check to make sure that you did not put both primary brake shoes on one side. it is common for the rear brake shoe to be a little larger than the front and sometimes a little thicker.
