Re: Clio Rear Brakes Lock On when Reversing

hi - it sounds as if the brake linings might be loose as thats what happened to me - the car rose up on the suspension. But you've said it happens in the rain and I'm wondering if its because the shoes have rusted to the drums in the damp. You could try leaving the car in gear rather than putting the handbrake on if you're leaving the car parked overnight or for a long period. New shoes are probably about 20-30 for four and I guess I'd take an evening to fit them, so probably take a garage an hour or so. They're more efficient and know what they're doing and so on... Maybe 70 parts and labour altogether?
Currently in o4abiggerhammer's garage:
no clio :-(
