Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On my 1968 VW / London Roadster kit car I have the drivers side brake grabbing real
hard when I try to stop. Can someone tell me how to adjust the brakes to get this to stop.

1 Answer


A brake fluid leak will cause brake grab...wheel cylinder. I dont remember adjustment proceedure but they should both be set so there is just slight contact between shoe and drum when you rotate the drum
