Re: clio 11 rear wheel cylinder blowing

Can't be adjusters. The shoes can't adjust any further out than the drum.
There are 2 sizes of rear drums. 180mm and 203mm on clio11.
If yours has the 203mm drum and shoes then someone fits a cylinder for the 180 set up, then the pistons may have to come further out before shoes touch drums.
The body of the cylinders may be the same but pistons may be shorter on the 180 cylinder so when brake pressed they come out further than they should.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
