Re: Clio 1.2 2001 rear brakes very weak

he is probably referring to the handbrake, by engaging and disengaging the hand brake the self adjusters then do their job if needed and adjust. I would whip the drums off and check the condition of the adjusters and shoes and replace if necessary. If you replace the adjusters set on minimum and adjust via handbrake. Do not attempt to adjust while the drum is off though.
