Re: handbrake stuck on

you don't say whether its a mechanical or electric brake my laguna has an electric one their is an emergency release in the centre console take out the bottom of the console it just pulls out no need for tools then you will see a little yellow handle give that a tug and the brake should release if not then their maybe a cable seized or a calliper maybe on its way out hope this helps
