Conrad
Gilbey
Barre
Massachusetts
Conrad left his car sitting for three months in the cold. When he went to drive it, the emergency brake had frozen. He tried hitting the brake shoes with a hammer, with little success. How can he free it? Tom and Ray think the problem is rust--the brake shoes have pretty much welded themselves to the drums. He can try rocking the car back and forth to loosen the e-brake, but he’ll probably need to get the car towed to a shop.
