I know how to remove the drum cover and stuff so i may do that amd see if i can grease or lube anything in there when i get a chance (the weather is bitter cold and forecasting rain and snow next few days). Will it hurt or damage anything for time being until i get to it ?...it still works and stuff, everything else is normally like i said. (I knew i could leave it in gear...its a 5spd...but I forget and it pops the clutch when i start it haha im so use to using the ebrake)
UK,

Make sure that the EBrake isn't dragging cause if it is,, that can cause the Brake's to heat up and cause damage. If it get's hot enough it can also damage seal's.

Sometime's when it is Too Cold/Wet, it's best to bite the Bullet and take it to a garage for repair.

Good Luck,

I cant feel or tell/heat of any dragging. No sounds or anything getting hot that im aware of but thanks for the heads up. Ill b sure to look for that
UK,

It's probly releaseing, but maybe some rust or weak spring, just a guess. Wet will also cause the Brake's to not want to release.

My '13, after I wash the Truck and Wheel's, water/moisture get's on the Pad's/Disk and they'll stick, if I leave the Truck parked for a few day's before driveing. Sometime's I have to put in Drive and then Reverse to rock them loose. Then I alway's check for any dragging sound and make sure that the Truck Roll's good when in neutral.

Hot and/or Cold Weather is often when part's start to show problem's 1st.

Good Luck,
