Used my park brake for the first time in quite awhile, anyhow now it is stuck on.
The park brake lever will return to the off position but the brakes remain on so I assume the cable is seized.

Upon closer inspection there appears to be a lever that is attached to the cable (near the hub) and likely needs to be pushed rearward to free up the brakes

Any ideas

figured it out was fairly except for laying in the snow to do it Smile

Most likely the cable will not come free. Bolt cutters work great if you can get them in there.

Soak the lever and inner cable in WD 40/PB Blaster. Let sit for a bit, see if you can move the lever/cable. Cool

I sprayed the lever with pb blaster and drove it rearward and am back to normal now.
