Hi and welcome to just answer.
did you fit these pads yourself?
did you fully retract the crake caliper pistons?
did you apply the brake pedal after fitment of pads to forward the piston on to the pads?
hi pal just spoken to the mechanic and the answer is yes to your questions,as I said new pads and cable he said all pistons work ok but he cant understand why it will not hold,many thanks
has your mechanic removed the coin tray in the center consul and adjusted the lever?
hi rob just spoke to him again and he said he had adjusted the lever
if you mechanic has followed the correct procedure then i can no longer offer you help and will opt out and repost the question .
ok thanks rob, that's what the mechanic said he just cant understand after going through everything 3 times he has run out of options, thanks anyway
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
hi there I have no problem in waiting for your answer

hi greg, yes they are drum brakes, going to work now so wont be able to respond until after 4 , many thanks hope you can solve it its doing my head in
hi greg spoke to the mechanic and he said all cable was free and working as it should as I said the cable is new and he says the pistons in the drum all work ok, thanks daz
hi greg just tested the hand brake and I can force it to six clicks, he told me he had his lad put the hand brake on while he watched without the drums and said they worked ok, like I said he has tried 3 times but it got him stum, many thanksped at one point he thought the drums might have hair line cracks which were getting forced out when the brake is applied
hi greg just tried it and yes it is just as bad in reverse as going forward, many thanks
hi greg I might have sorted it just had it on the jack and read the numbers on the 2 rear cables and one side is one didget different to the other so had a look and there is play to one side so is pulling on a angle and only gripping a little to one side only
hi greg they say the cables are right so I just measured between the wheels and there is 10mm difference on one side to the other hence the cable being a little slacker on one side , there are no new parts so I don't think its been bumped could worn bushes cause this, hope you can help many thanks
hi greg could worn bushes on the rear cause a 10mm difference between the wheels , many thanks
hi greg our lass is out at the moment and im not very good with cars when the mechanic called the other day he took the wheel off and was able to pull the cable back about 10m where it fits onto the arm in the brake drum which would not adjust up, like I said greg could the rear bushes be the cause of the gap difference between the wheels
