    Take it to a repair shop! This is what STOPS your van. Sometimes it's better
    to get a mech. to do BRAKE work.

    If the emergency brake is part of the caliper , then the caliper piston needs to be 'spun' back in. if you've already tried to compress it using to much force , odds are that you have damaged it and will need to have it replaced.
