Clio mk3 rear drums query?
So, I have a few little niggles with the dci lately but this one got me thinking.
I was free wheeling backwards down a hill and I could hear a bit of a squealing/squeaking noise. It appeared to be coming from the rear drums. I wasn't applying the brakes at all.
Ive mentioned to my mechanic about servicing/replacing shoes etc on the rear drums before but he told me not to touch them. I got the impression that they seemed to be difficult to get right again once they were tampered with/serviced. Is there any truth in that?
Oh, the car has almost 120k miles on it now, I've had it since 30k & I've never had the rear brakes serviced - mainly due to my mechanic saying not to touch them. Oh, my mechanic did adjust my handbrake once as there was too much travel in it, but that's it.
