I have kind of a weird problem with the handbrake on my 96 G20. Well if I use my handbrake to much the piece on the brakes that makes the car stop when using the handbrake tightens up the more I use the handbrake. Every time it dose this I have to take the wheel off and untighten them. But this problem only happens on the rear tires. So I hope that some one knows a fix for this because I dont want to spend the time and the money getting new calipers.

The reason it only happens on the rear tires is because the handbrake only affects the rear tires. Also, I am having a hard time understanding the problem... Are you trying to say that when you use the handbrake, the e-brake fails to release whenever you put the brake back down?

I saw you elaborated on your problem over on G20.net Glad you are working on a fix (I didn't finish reading the thread)
