    Hi good people out there. Well I have the girl for a year and what a van had to many uses for it put to many things in the back and has not missed a beat.
    Just had the MOT and the test centre say's that the foot break could do with an adjustment. So I'm thinking some kind person out there will be able to tell me how to do it.

    Thanks for your help

    Hey up thebigone Newhaven near Bakewell ? The foot brake is same as old type drum brakes inside the discs, with supposedly self adjusting system! When I fitted new discs pads I just clicked the adjusters with screwdriver kept trying the disc back on until getting a slight binding, went from 6/7 clicks on foot to 3. Would not have thought you need new shoes. Trev.

    As said is in the hub, take until you cannot move the drum and them back off a few clicks.
