parking brake stuck


The parking brake is stuck in my '95 Cavalier. The car was parked for about 2 weeks, and when I went to release the brake, the handle moves, but the rear wheels are still locked...

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

You might try crawling under the back and giving the backing plates a few good whacks with a hammer. Will sometimes knock things loose; just be careful not to hit anything important like bleeder screws.
