Hi Guys

 

A couple of months ago I cleaned and adjusted my rear brakes, as the hand brake was usless. Once I had done this it was perfect for about a month, however in the last month the hand brake is coming up high again and not nearly as good as it was.

 

Is there a knowen issue with the brake adjusters?

 

Should I buy new ones from ford?

 

Any one know how much these are?

 

Mot Due on the 10th :o

Are any of the springs stretched or any signs of wear?

Hey Steph

I didnt notice,

 

I fitted a new fitting kit a while ago, but the small spring on the adjuster wasnt changed....

 

Was thinking about buying new adjusters, I assume they would come with new springs.......and an outragious price tag...

Called ford to looking for prices of the rear adjusters.........£62 + vat for a 'kit'   :blink:

Im hoping a kit is an axel set i.e. a pair.......

 

Anyway I have adjusted the brakes again....So fingers crossed for now
