Handbrake is stuck on car how do you loosen it?

The most common cause of a stuck handbrake is when the rear brake shoes "rust/stick" onto the drums. This can normally be released using "percussive maintenance" (IE Hitting it). Hit the drum with a hammer once, sharply, on the stuck side. Experience is require to know how hard is "hard enough," so start gently, and if that does not work, hit harder. If access to the drum is limited, put a socket over one of the wheel nuts/bolts, and hit the socket. DO not hit the wheel or nuts/bolts directly as this may cause damage. (Hitting the drum is OK, as cosmetic damage is much less of an issue than it would be if you hit the wheel directly. Hitting the nuts/bolts may prevent a socket fitting so making removal to replace tyres difficult, hence the suggestion to put a socket over the nut/bolt, and hit that.) This problem could also be caused by a seized brake cable (again possible due to rust) a faulty hand-brake lever, a failure of the components inside the drum (A detached brake lining, or a detached component within the drum.) It should also be noted that some vehicles have a hand-brake that operates through a brake-calliper onto disks (rotors) rather than in a drum. In the above mentioned other causes percussive maintenance is unlikely to be of help, and the assistance of an experienced motor vehicle service engineer should be sought.

How to change brake shoe's in a 2006 Chevy Cobalt?

rear brake shoes are pretty much the same on all cars and truck. basically you remove the tire remove the brake drum retaining clips. unadjust the brake adjuster. this is doen by removing the plug on the back of the brake backign plate. then turn the star to let the brake shoes back off from the drum. once the pressure is off the shoes the drum will come off. then you remove the shoes by taking off the springs and stuff that hold the shoes on. putthe new shoes on and the drum. readjust the brakes with turning the star the other way. spin the drum to see if they are free or stuck if they are stuck you went too much. unadjust them to get them to where they barely rub. and you are done.
