Rear Wheel Bearing and ebrake problem

Took my car in to get the rear wheel bearing replaced. The mechanic just called to say they can't do the wheel bearing because the ebrake "can't be removed, it's just stuck there" and he doesn't want to damage anything trying to get it off. Then the dreaded words...."you might have to take it to the dealer."

To be clear, the ebrake isn't stuck as in the wheels don't move. In fact it's too loose and doesn't hold the car on a hill. I'm too lazy to adjust the bolts under the handle. I'm pretty sure he's unable to physically remove it to get to the wheel bearing.

Has anyone ever experienced this? I haven't looked at it myself yet.

Thanks to anyone who might give me some insight.
