Question about Pontiac Grand Prix
It is likely you will have to lay down on the ground and reach under the car and assist the cable out, pulling towards the rear of the car. I am assuming you are going to have to jack the car up in order to get underneath the vehicle. In doing so, place safety jacks under the car, block the front wheels so they don't roll. I don't know about your specific car, but usually the brake cable is only partially protected from the elements from the lever back to the rear brake drums. corrosion and disuse makes the cable get hung up and sticky. Look under the car. usually there is a turnbuckle or adjusting spring visible on the cable too. Do you see a cable running from near the front left assuming a foot pedal, or the center assuming a hand lever in the center, and running towards the rear? It will connect to another cable sleeve in the rear and split in two for each side. Once you find this cable you need to pull, tug, and work it gently in both directions ( but primarily tugging it towards the rear) to loosen the brakes. You may need another person in the car to push the release button, while you are pulling on the cable.
