2008 451 Cabrio. Drove yesterday without incident. I did not set the e-brake when I parked it. This morning I started the car and began to back up; after I had moved only a few feet, the right rear wheel suddenly locked up and refuses to budge. I searched the forum and didn't find anyone who had exactly the same symptoms; I'd appreciate any ideas! Brake adjuster?

How many miles? Original brakes? I'm thinking the adjuster also but you'll have to remove the wheel to find the actual problem. :)

About 100K, but almost all highway miles, so the brakes really don't get used much. I've only had to replace the front pads once.
