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.

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

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 .
