Re: Twingo 2010 rear brakes

In my experience where rear drum brakes are concerned it is rarely necessary to adjust the handbrake cables. The problem usually lies with the self-adjusters inside the rear drums. Even if you do suspect the cables always check out the adjusters first otherwise if you tighten up the cables you run the risk of the rear brakes binding should the adjusters take a notion to work (which they rarely do)
