Re: Noisy rear brakes on Twingo

they may need a clean as brake dust can build up inside
i have never known a rear brake adjuster to work 100% and evan my kangoo i have to adjust them manually once a year if i adjust too much i get the rubbing noise and back off the adjuster a little
at the moment i have a bad noise on the n/s rear once this rain stops i will have the drum off to find out the cause i have a feeling it will be new shoes needed or a new bearing
as you can see there can be many reasons for drum noise and it should not be there and if you have a noise it should be investigated
if your dealer thinks its fine and you are not happy goto a local independent garage and let them look at the brakes
Currently in bugsb's garage:
