Problem after adjusting rear brake shoes. Clio 2


I have just disassembled, cleaned and reassembled my rear drum brakes due to a squeak when releasing the brake pedal.

My squeak is gone but I have another problem now. It's hard to explain but when I brake, the brakes seem a little over sensitive at first, then the pedal seems to drop a little and I have to apply more pressure to maintain the same amount of brake force. My pedal seems fine when stationary and it holds on hills with no extra pressure required.

This has me baffled! Please can someone help?
