Something to remember with our emergency brakes:
The cable moving around in the breeze can tighten up the calipers, that's what there's a Big-Ass Wire Tie around it and the Cable mount on the Caliper from the factory, holding it together so it won't move sideways.
to put that back, or you can easily get dragging calipers.
Our cars have been thru several owners in some cases, and these might be gone; it's worth checking to see if they're there.
If you're not pulling the clip on the Ebrake Adjustment (in the rear middle of the cable), and removing the cables from the caliper, BEFORE
you start fucking with the caliper removal, you are really fucking up; and making this a miserable job.
Every time you wiggle the caliper with respect to the cable, the piston will tighten back up; and that's the hardest part or doing these brakes, making the Freaking piston go in.
