    If it's like most parking brakes, the hang-up could be on either side. Check with the guys on the Seville forum. They know their (very different) cars.

    I took anything hard and wacked it. I had a 2002 park avenue. Sometimes I had to push it untill it released. It was a pain in the a$$. I never set the parking brake after I released it. They get hung up, dont know why but its a pain to get it loose. You would have to figure out which one is hanging up first then wack it or push it loose.
