On my son's 2000 Tiburon, the driver side rear caliper parking brake lever is "frozen"
Hitting repeatedlywith a good size hammer did not free up the mechanism.
Passenger side works fine but driver side is frozen solid.
Any suggestions on how to free this up other than replacing the entire caliper?
Would heat help or will it damage internals
As a result, parking brake does not hold car and he failed his State Safety inspection.
I replaced the brake pads as they were worn and hoped it might help but no luck.
Cables work fine and parking brake handle has been adjusted.
Thank you in advance,
