what car? most cars have a floor (between seats) ebrake lever.
on some one cable leads out goes to a T-bar which pulls on two cables
(one for each wheel)
or some have both cables attach to e-brake lever.

these cables usually go all the way to rear brakes.... now do you have
disc or drum brakes?

rear disc brakes usually have a lever on the back of the caliper that
frequently seizes..... ie brake sticks on

drum brakes the cables seize and inside the drum there is a lever which
applies the brakes .... when cable seizes the brakes stick on

obviously the cable can stick on as well with disc rear brakes but it is
less likely
i suspect (as quadrant pivot is so damn vague) that he is talking about
the one of the rear calipers.... 40 pound when converted to canadian
funds .... yeah sounds about right
