Screeching after the hand brake being broken

Dear comrades, I've pulled the hand brake too hard, after which the central cord was torn and the brakes in the rear wheels started to screech violently when the vehicle in the motiob.
How do I unsettle the car from the hand brake so that to prevent the screeching.
Thanks in advance

You didn't write.

You didn't write if you repaired what failed. I'd start with that.

I wrote I didn't manage to, yet

Thanks, I wrote I didn't manage to remove the screeching. As to the very hand brake, it will suffice meanwhile to go without it. I'm going to put the vehicle on the first gear untill I buy new central cable. Thanks.
I think I know how to substitute the brocken central cable, but the paradox is that I'm not sure how to release the vehicle from the hand brake when the central cable is torn

All skill levels out there.

While I've done a lot of my own repairs, about half the time I take it to the shop.

If you want to fix it, you find the service manual or hope for a YouTube.

Thanks, mate

Thanks, mate. I think, I'll do it myself. It mustn't present too much dificulty. I will watch some youtube videos, they are quite comprehensive indeed. Thanks

Hi, Isaac; You 'can' disconnect the e-brake cables at the rear brakes until you can get the cable replaced. Since this is a manual trans., I wouldn't advise doing it, but it 'can' be done. If you have drum brakes in back, it's a bit harder to do. If you have disc brakes in back, very easy to do.
Good luck.

Thank you very much

Thank you very much. I do have drums, but I suppose I'll try and disconnect the cables myself. I have a jack and some wrenches which may be necessary for that purpose. Thanks
