It depends on how "stuck" they are. Penetrating oil (not WD-40) sprayed on and let to sit for a couple of hours will help. You may also need to use a combination of a large "C" clamp, a 2x4 piece of lumber, and/or a rubber mallet, with a liberal application of force.

Get your brakes checked. It can be something simple, or it can mean impending doom.

According to Edmunds ( the 2004 Hyundai Elantra can tow 3,086 pounds with trailer brakes, and 1,000 without. The article does not specify which powertrain is equipped. The third generation of Hyundai Elantra design spans from 2001 to 2006, and may likely have similar mechanical qualities. For further information, try contacting Hyundai directly at 1-800-633-5151.
