You definitely are mistaken (or smoking crack)....the e-brake mechanism has no connection to the hydraulic brake line.


How did you adjust the parking brake handle? Maybe you adjusted it the wrong way? and made the cable too loose ?

Also did you ensure the little piece at the bottom where the cable comes in was free and not seized? If that small part is seize your brake shoes won't budge.
