Re: Locking brakes
Renault rear brake shoes have a history of the linings coming adrift from the metal shoe. A good clean up of the drum and new shoes usually cures the problem but whilst you are in there lift up the edges of the boots on the slave cylinders. If there are any signs of corrosion or brake fluid it is best to have the cylinders renewed.
If brake sticking persists afterwards then it may be the drums are out of shape due to ovality.
