I had to drive through a small flood on Friday on the way home, which was unavoidable. I havent used my car since, but I have just gone out to do some shopping and my car will not move. The engine starts, but the handbrake seams stiff and the wheels wont budge. What can I do?. I have a R reg Ford Escort estate. The car is parked in the street with another car closely parked at the front so I cannot get to have a closer look underneith. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Rear brakes seem to be stuck on. Take the wheel off and the hub, and free up the brake shoes. Hope this helps
