Re: Manual brake release without starting engine?

Look underneath for the brake unit.
3 cables come out of it plus the electrical connection.
2 of the cables go to the back wheels.
The third is the emergency release.
It's not unknown for the bit in the boot to disappear and the cable being left dangling. The inner needs a good tug.
It should go to boot floor and disappear inside.
If it does, you know where to look.

Again, yellow handle can disappear so all that sticks up is what looks like the end of a bike brake cable.
That's the beasty.

In my younger days, (long ago) when trolley jacks were the size if a shed, with commensurately large wheels. We used to move cars using the jack as wheels. We also used to grease / oil sheets of metal & slide them about.

I also thought down that line but would depend on the ground surface ..smooth tarmac or similar use the trolley jack ...

It is easier to take it apart than to put it back together
