Re: Clio 1.2 2001 rear brakes very weak

Have budget or top brand pads been fitted? Has the brake system been bled properly? Any excessive travel at the brake pedal? How was the load-sensing valve checked? Maybe you should take the car to an MOT garage and ask them to test the brakes on their rollers to see what braking effort you have at each wheel.

Don't take without giving in return
