    My parking brake doesn't fully return after disengaging it, so I have to hook it with my left foot and pull it out a half inch. So, is this:

    A lack of lube problem?

    A worn out spring problem?

    Any thoughts out there?

    Where are you located? Could it be frozen at all?

    Thanks for responses! I will look under for stuff to lube up. And yes it has been cold out, it snowed again yesterday. It still moves though so its not frozen in place... just the last half inch.
