Hi,

As I see it there is no adjuster screw on the rear shoe assembly so if you have an imbalance at your MOT the only solution appears to be replace shoes/drums on both sides... assuming you don't have a cylinder leak...

Am I right?

My shoes pad thickness appears to be fine about 4mm at the top and 3mm at the bottom.

The forward most shoe on the weaker side is as above, the rear shoe on the weaker side is more uniform in thickness if anything it is slightly thinner at the top.

I have not taken off the drum on the other side (driver side) of the car yet to take a look.

The weaker side drum feels to have only about 0.5 mm of wear.

There is no balance adjustment.

You can try to adjust shoes close to drum on both side. If it doesn't help you could try some sandpaper for shoes and drums. Next step is new parts usually.

im not too sure on how to adjust each side individually, but you can adjust / tighten the cable from under the cup holder by the handbrake surround. theres one torx screw un the middle of the cup holder bit, reomce the and push the trim forward and the trim will unclip and lift out.


previously i have tightened that nut there to improve the handbrake.
