JA: Have your brakes ever been replaced? Have you checked the brake fluid?
Customer: Brakes have been replaced. I did not check the break fluid.
JA: Are you fixing your Civic yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I've just tried to rock the car back and forth and jiggled the brake lever but not any help
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: nothing more but what if the charge for the consult ?
JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Honda mechanic. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.

ok, the shoes may be frozen to the drum. you will need to get down under the car and hit the back of the drum with a hammer. this usually releases the stuck shoes.
