Yup, the cable swells from rust and jams inside the case. You need to figure out which cable has seized. The 3 cables join up behind the drivers seat underneath. You can pull on each wheel cable to see if they move. That is where you can slack them off also.
From experience in the rust belt, if one is seized, usually all 3 need to be replaced.
