Need more details.  Tranny to Neutral.  Raise both rear wheels on jack stands.  Park brake  disc is on diff drive shaft.  Have assistant rotate any side rear wheel...open diff....opposite rear wheel will turn in reverse direction.  If TRUE, diff is ok.  Try to rotate drive shaft, if park brake locked.....NO GO.  Have seen master cyl hold pressure to FR and RR locking them up....thus the jackstand test.

Lever has stepped rack, button release....problem with release?

Cable stuck in sheath?

Mechanical brake cam/lever stuck on full pad pressure.  Need answers to go forward.

Thanks Ben 98. Took off plate and tried turning the rotor but brake too tight. I then pulled the cotter pin from the cable adjustment end and got the pb pedal to release. This freed up the pb back at the rotor and I can run it without using the parking brake. I think I just need to adjust the cable, but I’ m not sure which way to go with the adjustment nuts. At least I can ride it if I don’t have to park on a hill. Thanks Ben

The cable "pulls" the lever and thus cams the pads together in the calipers.

Reassy with slack in the cable and then adjust (tighter) to no drag at RELEASE and but make sure it will hold on a hill when set before end of pedal travel.

After thought...woods riding can snag a cabe and pull the brake tight.

Ben, thanks again.    Question:  Is there an electrical connection to the pb other than the obvious one with the cable leading to the regular brake?  The pb is supposed to release with the ignition on and stepping on the regular brake.  There are two cables  leading to the regular brake pedal. I am assuming that the cable on the left is the adjustment for the pb. The one one the right is adjustable too, and Am I right in assuming that it leads to an electrical relay, maybe for both the pb release and the brake light switch, or is it just for the brake lights?

      Howdy all,
      I searched the forum (and the internet in general) for this and didn't find anything that looked like an answer.
      I purchased a Coleman 550 from Tractor Supply last October.  Runs well.  Really only one issue that I have had and that is a dragging brake pad.  Still haven't fixed it, but hope to soon.
      For now, it is time for the first oil change (38 hours).  After some reading, I decided to use Mobil 1 4T 10w-40.  I also purchased a filter from motorcyledoctor.com.  Got the filter and noticed that there is a hex head on the end.  I thought "Hey that's nifty, but I wonder why they did that?".  Then I went to change the oil and I know why now.  Which brings me to my question.
      How in the hell is one supposed to get that oil filter off?  First off, it is not obvious how to take the seat base out to get leverage.  I thought about cutting out the plastic above where the filter is.  But decided against it for now.  I tried my best to work within the tiny space given to get the filter out.  I have a number of different filter wrenches.  Only one is able to fit over the filter.  But ... I could not get the filter to break loose.
      So, I ordered a strap wrench from Amazon.  
      https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MZH57V5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
      In case that doesn't work, I also ordered this:
      https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FVNH2QV/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
      My intention with the latter is that if the strap wrench does not work, I will punch a hole or two into the side of the second product.  Put it over the end of the filter, put two screws into it and hope I can break it loose.
      Anyone else experience this incredibly difficult task?  I have always worked on my own vehicles and have had some difficult circumstances, but I always prevailed.  Not this time.  The Coleman 550 b*tch slapped me this weekend and is pointing and laughing at me.
      Any suggestions or recommendations would be great.  If nothing else, just some content on the subject so that someone else who might be having the same issue can find this and get some ideas.
      Thanks,
      CC

      Never owned a UTV need for very hilly terrain on road and off. Will get moderate use. Hoping for a comfortable reliable vehicle,  good mix of function between work and play. speed not important. Considering Pioneer 700-4   Teryx 4 person  Found good deal on 2018 Maverick Mx XMR? Any input on these vehicles is MUCH appreciated

      I got this from Coleman, detailed instruction re: shift cable adjustment...
      I forgot to mention you will need two 22 mm wrenches for the cable lock nuts. I hacked up a couple of cheap "quality tools for less" combination wrenches using a cut-off wheel in an angle grinder:

      Kind of like "flare nut wrenches", good for light duty like this.

      Traded my Coleman (Hisun) 550 in yesterday on a new 1140.
      What a difference already!

      My father in law just delivered our new sector E1 and after 5 minutes of driving around we smelled burning smoke and discovered the three wires red, yellow and green were burning. 
      It still drives but were afraid of it catching on fire!
      Anyone else have this experience?
