So of course the handbrake would freeze and lock the rear brakes if you ever pulled it, but it was nothing that a lot of penetrating oil, a hammer, and pulling the brake about 100 times couldn't fix
When I got my car a couple years ago, the DS brake was actually unhooked so only the PS brake was working.
I hooked it back up, wasn't paying attention, and the brakes locked on and I burned through the rear brake in about two days. [more
] It still liked to lock on once in a while but with a new unrusty cable, it should never be a problem again.
