Stuck parking brakes are usually due to dirty/worn cables. Try tapping on the brake backing plates with a hammer. Don't hit them real hard and damage them. Some times this will allow the return springs to back off the brakes. If it works and they stick again next time you use your parking brake you need new cables.
It means that in your Grand AM SE 3.3 your emergency brake is broken.
You need to bleed the system.
there seems to be no adjustment, check your rear drum emergency guiders on both wheels, sometimes the cables will jump off, cables stretch also, check the other end where it connects to the brake lever, look with a flashlight thru the passenger side of the slot at the retaining nut and routing.
It seems like there might be air in your brake system. You should try bleeding your brakes and filling it with fresh brake fluid.
Mine seems to work fine.
dude! sounds like air brake sys.(system needs to be bled get air out of sys.)As for gettin stuck , check linkage,brake booster and master cyl.
I would think that you have a leak in your exhaust system.
calliper seems to be sticking up
It is split front and rear. You have two separate brake issues. I would pull all four wheels and take apart all four brakes inspecting along the way. The left front could have a frozen caliper piston,caliper slide pins or a damaged/blocked brake hose. The right rear wheel cylinder may be frozen or the brake is way out of adjustment.
Call 911 immediately, or get yourself to the emergency room, if that seems quicker.
Do you mean the " BRAKE " light ? - when the brake fluid level is low in the brake master cylinder in the engine compartment , the " BRAKE " light will come on just like it does when the parking brake is engaged
I do not know how to install brake pads, but the following website seems to be very helpful. http://www.edmunds.com/how-to/how-to-change-your-brake-pads.html They have pictures to illustrate each step.
