Re: Clio Rear Brakes Lock On when Reversing
I looked at a Clio with this problem a few weeks back and could see nothing wrong with it,
linings were bonded ok with little ware, no leaks but there's a bump pressed into
the back plate that lines the shoes up and I suspect
that the edge of the shoes are riding over the edge of
this, I put a very small amount of brake grease right
on the edge of this and it's been fine since but I suspect
it's due to tolerances in after market shoes and that
some org maker ones would cure it for good.
Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?
If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
