Rear break problems

Asked by May 23, 2019 at 12:28 AM about the 1997 Lincoln Continental

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Seems like the emergency break is sticking or not
releasing all the way. What can I do?

1 Answer


On a twenty-two year old vehicle, you'll find a lot of corrosion. To free the emergency brake, find where it's binding and spray a lubricant like WD-40 on the area, it might take several applications, but eventually the cable or stuck brake parts will release.
