Re: Rear Brake pads of a 51 plate Clio

You will have to get in there to know what you are up against. Once you let brakes get noisy then you may be down to rivets on shoes and have scoring on drums.

So it could be new shoes, or drums and shoes. Then you see a weepy brake cylinder and before you know it, you have brake overhaul.

Although it can be bad news, it is all to the good if it needs done. So , it is not the tools you need for a job, but the ones required for the possible findings.
