Ok, able to open the left brak by applying 12vdc and tap the housing and it slowly started to retract until the disc was loose.
Tried the right hand side and no movement from the electric motor. Not sure how to retract the motor. Coil measures 30 ohms which is about right (ish)
The power supply I’m using is 3 amp. Maybe it’s not powerful enough!
Thank you everyone in helping me out! Job not done yet but it’s all been helpful to bounce things off

Sorry, bum stear! Ohms on right hand coil is hee haw! Open circuit!
Looks like I have to buy one. $493!!! 😱
Since I had to forced the disc off I damaged the backing plate and locating pins and spring. No worries! I have a spare backing plate. Which I bought 2 when I replaced the left backing plate as it rusted at the locating and the shoes got jammed some time ago.
Needlegunned the whole area before installing new backing plate, springs and pins

Sitrep!
Car is going again. EPB on module 53 - Basic setting done and shoes adjusted to 0.07mm of each other. Took 7 attempts to get the adjustment. Calibration complete. Car happy again. Until the next problem…!
