Took apart belt cover and checked tension after i found that the auger drive would not disengage. The auger wheel does not stop turning as belt continues to turn.

this model is over 15 years old and i have observed that the brake rod (and what appears to be a pad) does not fully engage on the wheel when the auger is disengaged. does this brake actually stop the wheel spindle from moving as a belt (loose when the pulley is disengaged) moves around? If so, I may have a spent brake but don't know how to safely test to see if I can stop the spindle from moving.
