Right rear break locked in reverse only

Asked by Jun 21, 2014 at 02:17 PM about the 2003 Pontiac Sunfire

Question type: General

I have a question and not sure how to handle it.  When trying to reverse, the right rear break is locked on and the car will drag back but not roll from the right side.  Going forward either in gear or out of gear the car rolls freely.  I tried rocking the car back and forth to see if it would release and no change.  I also pulled the break cable connecting on the back with the car off and out of gear.  There is give on the left side but not the right.  I am not sure what to do at this point.

I would disassemble it and take a look inside. Sounds like something might have broke or came a loose.
