|1stiski||I’ve learned this lesson , I put our Brabus in the garage after a trip with wet roads , parking brake applied for two weeks , it took some throttle to budge it loose . Now I park all our Smarts that sit in the garage without the parking brake applied .|

More likely to be the rear drum brakes than the front discs. Mine will do this occasionally, a little throttle and they pop free.

Yup, sometimes it requires a lot of throttle if the car's been parked for a while, but that'll usually do the trick.
If they're actually locked, I'm not sure what you could do outside of taking them apart.

|jimvw57||Quite common for them to get flash rusted. I usually just give er some gas and they pop free, might try in reverse too.|

Hi everyone again thank you for the advice on our gas leak problem that’s all fixed 🙂 now another problem . It is raining here as usual these days in pa. Went to turn around our newly purchased 2009 Smart and the front brakes locked up 😞 can’t move the damn thing 😞 any input would be appreciated
