Question about Volkswagen Golf
The cable is most likely rusted and stuck in position. there are two or three of them in the system. you are going to have to get under it, find them and see which one is stuck. generally you will buy a new set that has all cables in it. as they are all generally rusted together that is normal. not hard to replace but remember to run the cables through any guides provided and put some chain lube on any swivel or pinch points. if you are not up to that, you can find where the parking brake cable exits the rear brake
on either side and lube and pull and push on it until you get the cable to relax and the brake to release. do this on both sides and then disconnect the parking brake handle or pedal inside the car so no one ever sets it again. you will have no parking brake.
