Re: 02 Clio dci rear drums assembly

The correct method of adjusting the rear drums is to first release the hand brake cable adjuster off until it at its last thread. Then check the adjusters inside each drum is nice and free and again adjust them to their lowest point. Then manually adjust each drum adjusting screw until you can just get the drums back into place. Then adjust the handbrake until neither brake can be turned - then release the cable adjustment until each wheel turns freely. Take the car for a short drive and then re-adjust if necessary.
