I can see you have never changed one that is frozen solid in there. If this happens you cant just twist it back and forth (that is terrible advice as they can break in half) you have to remove the brake disk and parking brake assembly, and use vise grips with a screw driver to extract the sensor. Re-assembling the parking brake is a b*tch too. Most of the cars with over 100k are like this, and if I was doing that job for someone I would charge 3 hours labor.
