Re: clio authentique, problem fitting brake shoes

Make sure that spring is in the right place

Use grease sparingly and only on the adjuster

Considering the bearing issue with it jamming, may be an idea to leave it out when offering up the drum to check initial adjustment...just careful not to damage the inner cage and balls.
Will allow the drum to go further on and (hopefully) overlap the shoes enough to give an idea where you are.
Bearing needs to be in to check for clean rotation and not binding.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
