Is there a way to release the ememrgncy brake on a manual shift 2002 escape when the arm is down but the brake is still on?

the brake cables are probably seized in their sheats try lubricating with release all ---------------------------- The way i get stuck emergency brake cables freed is to clamp vise grips onto the emergency brake cable and hit the vise grips with a hammer. Clamp the vise grips onto the cable a few inches before where the inner cable goes into the outer sheath. Make sure that the vise grips are 90 degrees to the cable and tap on the vise grips. You wont have to hit very hard, usually just a few bangs will get the cable to work back into the sheath and free the brake. Remember not to use the emergency brake again until you get it fixed.
