I have a 1975 Cadillac Coupe Deville and the emergency brake is stuck down. It is supposed to lift up when put into drive but it does not work. Is there anything I can do without bringing it to a shop to get fixed?

UPDATE: I found the release lever right above it, but when I drive I can still hear it even though the car isn't struggling to move forward. Any thoughts?

Make sure the cable that runs to the rear drum is lubricated and the cable is in its grooves. Inspect the drums and backing plate, give the backing plate some brake grease on the grease points.
