hi
my car went in for mot on tuesday and failed on the brakes.
well not all the brakes just the nearside rear .(DRUM) ALL OTHER BRAKES ARE FINE JUST THIS ONE .
with the pedal right down it grips a bit but i can still turn the wheel its almost like it isnt holding the presure as i can hold the piston with some grips
i have changed the shoes and the piston and still nothing the handbrake works good but the foot brake doesnt
so im puzzled
anyway
i have to get the problems sorted pretty smartish as i hav till friday to get the retest
thanks
chris

i presume all the air was bled out of the system, if it was it could be a flexable brake pipe that is not holding pressure if one is fitted.

Sounds like air in the system to me. Make sure its bled right and that you've tightened the pipe into the back of the cylinder (piston) enough
