My bet is the emergency brake cable(s) need replacing. Remove the cable from
the actuating arm at the caliper and see if the arm moves and returns
freely. If the rear calipers are not releasing, it is either the cables or
the calipers. See www.urs4.com for more info.

> The Machine:
> 1991 200 20V Avant
> The symptoms:
> Break pedal becomes resistance free for the first 1/3 of its travel, and
> calipers stay compressed (rear I believe). The brake drag is not severe,
> is quite noticeable.
> The last 2/3 of pedal travel feel normal, and the car stops well.
> The symptoms are intermittent, and not relieved by disabling the ABS,
> repeatedly pulling the E-Brake, or repeatedly pumping the pedal. The
> reservoir is full.
> Differential Diagnosis: ?? Do these symptoms reflect any one else's
> Thanks for all input, wanting to drive again.....
