Re: Brakes locking on
This is quite a common problem on Clios and it's not unknown for the brake lining to become detached from the shoe itself. Should this happen then the only way home is on a truck. Check the brake cylinders ain't sticking or leaking (you'll need to peek in behnd the outer rubber boots to be certain). Also check the internal mechanism is clean and free from corrosion.
A new set of shoes usually helps but I have seen cases were it is necessary to renew the drums as well.
