Re: MK2 Clio - Rubbish rear brakes

Manually adjusted screws inside drums until binding but not tight when the wheel is on. So light resistance to wheel turning.
1998 Clio - basic model non ABS.
Drum shows some light scoring but nothing serious for age.
No significant lip.
N/S shoes show slightly increased wear ( but I suspect that is because they are more efficient ) compared to O/S
I would of thought the handbrake must have a bearing on the footbrake - as shoe position at the handbrake end is a pivot point.
