Re: Really need advice. Please.
Had a Yaris and had to replace shoes and handbrake mechanism due to adjuster failing and lever on shoes siezed ...could only get adjuster from Toyota too.. cost £43
Not saying it can't happen.
And TBH, a garage would probably take the route of replace.... after all, two hours of freeing off and cleaning covers a 100 quids worth of parts.
But cleaning and freeing off for the DIY mechanic makes it a right cheap fix.... time and some penetrating
/diesel.... touch of copper slip.
(don't get any lubricant near friction faces)
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
