Re: MK2 Clio - Rubbish rear brakes

What year is your car.
Is it a mk2 phase1 model.
Does it have ABS.
If it failed for brakes binding- what did you do to fix that.
Is there a large lip on the drum stopping it going on easily.

The handbrake should have no bearing on the footbrake side.
As long as the levers are against the stops and the screw aduster is wound out until the shoes lightly brush the drum then that's right.

Does it look like any work has been done recently or unmatched age parts between the 2 sides.

Compensator fault- It's possible but not sure how likely. Difficult to determine unless you can measure the pressure in the hydraulic lines.
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.
