Default Brakes stuck

Hi
I have a Camry -91. It seems like the brake on the right rear wheel is
stuck. I made a long trip through the worst rain I've seen and then it
stodd still for 10 days, maybe it corroded? What I've tried so far is
to spray de-corrosion liquid over the brake and try to get it to the
inner parts. Then I've been driving a meter or so back and forth, but
the wheel wont move.

Do you have any advice on what to do? Since I can't move it really I
can't take it to the workshop. If i have to remove the brake, how do I
do it? Can it be the P-brake or its wire, and how can I deal with that?

Thanks in advance, and sorry for the english.

Is the parking brake cable on, do you use the parking brake, get under
and look if you have used it recently. Rain would not hurt it likely
years of corosion , maybe the wheel cilinder is stuck or something else.
You have to get the wheel off, driing with a stuck brake can get things
800-1000f, ruin bearings, boil and ruin the fluid, and more. I hope its
your parking brake. Once I saw a guy pull in a garage, his wheel was
literly Red hot, he ruined everything, even the tire.

==============================
If you're unfamiliar with working on brakes, you might want to have a
tow truck take it to the dealer.
You can remove the brake drum by pressing it off through a couple of
threaded holes near the center - may have to back off the shoes first
through a slot in the backing plate if the drums have worn a ridge and
the shoes are tight.
Once the drum is off you should be able to see the problem. Could be
broken return spring or seized wheel cylinder.
On that age vehicle I'd just plan on replacing just about everything.
Wheel cylinder rebuilding kits if they're leaking or not operating
correctly, plus new shoes and springs.

OK, thank you for your replies. We took a deeper look and could see
that there was no problem with the normal break, but it seemed like the
p-break was stuck. The problem was solved by banging a little bit on
the center (drum?) with a hammer. After that I did some heavy breaks
from ca 30 km/h or so, no problem. I'm going to get some service done
but it can't be done right now, I'll need the car this coming week. Do
I have do worry about something before service is done do you think?
