Re: Back brake woes ( Share Yours )

Biggest issue I seem to have with shoes is getting that little washer onto the pin while compressing the springs.
Like circlip firing, it is a depressing sport hunting around the drive for the little bu66ers.

Then the trial and error bit setting the ratchet on the auto adjust, always a bit of a pain.

IIRC, handbrake pads on a Jag IRS rear axle were awkward, more from their inboard position then anything else.

Winding back calipers can be a PITA but never invested in a proper wind back tool so my own fault
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
