Hey guys, today went to release the handbrake and she didnt want to go in and by the time i got her in, the handbrake light stayed on. so i pushed her in again and the light went off. the problem is i drove around the block and came back to smell the brakes making a lovely smell. so the problem is the handbrake is not relasing!!

Does any1 know of what could be the problem and how to fix??

also is there a way i could disconect and fix later if its a major problem??

thanks in advance

kermey!!!

stick your head under the back of the car and make sure the handbrake levers (where the cable joins on) are retracting fully against the backing plate of the disk/handbrake drum assembly. If theyre not, try backing off the cable adjustment (underneath the car or at the handbrake lever depending on model car) and see if that makes a difference... failing that u can remove the wheels and brake callipers and discs and see what is floating around inside. The falcon handbrakes are fairly simple in how the operate so u should be able to figure it out from looking...
