The hand brake is a lever that pulls a cable, which in turn pulls the rear brake shoes, which contact the brake drum, which stop the car. If your E-brake does not work at all ,the first I would check under the car to see if the cable is intact and not rusted in place. ( a common problem)If the cable is froze in place you will need to order a new one. Also check the adjusters along the cable, they may need tightening.I hope this helps you. Mark
