Why is my handbrake so hard to release? It takes way to much effort to release it. Just this morning I pulled it so hard that my alarm went off. What to do?

What do you mean by release it ? Like to hard to pull it up ? Or to hard to push the button down ?

Maybe you're setting the handbrake lever too hard. Try a gentler pull when setting the brake. It doesn't require a full-on yank to set the parking brake.
