Re: Clio1 brake shoe replaced,cant refit hub!

Nice pic
That is the self-adjuster fitted just below the hydraulic cylinders. Take it off and screw the threaded part fully "in". With age that type of adjuster tends to get broken or the ratchet mechanism doesn't work too well. If all else fails the drum can be removed and adjust up by hand.

Add.: The linings don't look that worn, perhaps the poor handbrake was due to the self-adjusters not working, compounded by adjusting the brake cable when trying to improve the brake!
