There are several things that can make a hand brake stick on. It possible the cable attached to the leaver has come off it guide. There is a cable running from each rear wheel to the handbrake leaver , a inner cable running through a outer housing , chick that the inner cable is free to move back and forward . if all the cables are free to slide adjust the rear brakes and hand brake as instructions . Slacken off the hand brake cable adjustment. Jack up the rear wheals and adjust the brake shoes till the brakes lock, then back off till the wheels are free to turn.

My insignia hand brake has locked on how do i release rear offside only


you need to take off the rear wheel and there is a hand brake hole in the drum on the disc. you locate the hole with the adjuster.. make sure the hand brake is not on. the leaver for the hand brake take the cable off if the brake is locked the leave will let you take it off. then get a peace of wood and put it on the leaver and hit it back with hammer on the wood not the leaver. then take the screw out for the locator of the disc. and hit the disc with rubber or plastic hammer going round the disc. not to hard just to get it to move when of find out why the hand brake is locked in the first place. ( prob be the shoe's pins ) change the parts. while parts off give good clean and put some copper grease on the parts that move. huck back up the cable and check disc drum part for damage. screw the adjuster back down and refit. when disc back on adjust the brake with the hole lined up and move back and forth until the brake is locked then turn back one point on the adjuster check the disc turns and then use the hand brake. if still an bit hard to move after hand brake off nock the adjuster back down one more and test again. if all well put wheel back on.

Hi, I pressed my vehicles hand brake ,I want to know how i should release it. Thank you, Lina


on most handbrakes you have a leaver with a button or triger.

the usual way is the press the button and slightly lift the hand break lever this will allow the button to go fully in, keeping the button pressed lower the handbrake lever to its lowest position.

the hand brake is now released. to rapply the hand break just pull up the leaver without using the button it will click is it goes up. when the lever is raised it is now applied and the vehicle should not move.

i hope this was useful
