Question clio spongy brakes!!!

"load sensitive pressure regulating valve!" I have never seen a longer name for a car component...

Anyway hello!

I have a mk2 1.2 clio drum brakes rear. When I got it 2 years ago the breaks were absolutely amazing very powerful and strong. However now (30,000 miles later) they are very spongy and I tried to skid the tyres yesterday (safely) and I cant even make them skid... and it was wet!

Last MOT the garage said that the load sensitive pressure regulating valve was jamming, but they greased it up and said it was fine for the MOT. They also said the front pads needed changing soonish...

My question is what do you think it is? is it the pads or is it this valve with a wacky name? I have tried searching for them but can't seem to find them anywhere.

Is it a special dealer only part? (if it is that)

Cheers and thanks in advance for any help
