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.
