Default Rear caliper or e-brake cable problem HELP!!


I have had to change my brake calipers on two occasions now. I loosen off the e brake cable and set it up properly including setting them (driving backwards and slamming on the brakes). I have recently changed the pads on both sides and have had no issues since. However driving home from work I started to hear a squeal coming from the rear. Jacked the car up and found that the drivers' side moves easily....however the passenger side has seized. My only guess is that my brake cable, at least the passenger side, has seized and is keeping the brake closed. Anyone come across issues with the back brakes??

I am starting to think that my ebrake cable may need to be replaced, the calipers are fairly new rebuilds and I know I put them in right

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

while the wheel is seized, disconnect the e-brake cable from the caliper then check if the wheel moves freely. if it does, replace the cable

i have seen e-brake cables bind on one side only and also binding caliper pins.

good luck!
