Re: Clio Loose Handbrake
I examined everything last night and I just cannot understand it!!!
So under the car I have no adjustment, there is just the splitter for the cable, the only cable adjustment I have is at the handbrake itself, I actually added some spacers to this in case it was slack that was causing the issue.
I took some picture of the parts so Pic1 is under the car. Pic 2 & 3 are of the left and right rear brakes, there is no leak from the cylinder and there is plenty of “meat” left on the shoes.
Pic 4 is a side on shot of the Shoe and it looks fine to me.
Pic 5 is of the shoes when the handbrake is on you can see that it is moving as expected, so to me the issues seems that the contact between the shoe and drum is incorrect, would the self adjuster be the culprit here?
I put the drums back on and put the wheel nuts in place when the car was on axel stands I was able to put a tyre level between them and turn the wheel with the handbrake fully on!
I also tried with the foot brake on and could also turn it, so I am thing it could be the self adjusters?
