I'm at my wits end here!
Our Escort 1.8 Diesel failed the MOT with a lazy drivers side rear brake. We
have replaced the cylinder (which was also replaced less than six months ago
due to a leak, along with new shoes). Unfortunately with the foot brake full
on the wheel is still turnable by hand. The new cylinder is working but will
not sustain a grip on the drum.
My thoughts are that the load balancing unit may be at fault, but I have no
experience on these. Any ideas or solutions or previous experiences would be
most welcome. Thanks.
