Toyota Celica 1994 Driver side rear handbrake sticking in reverse

My Toyota Celica 2.0 GT drivers side handbrake is catching in reverse only! Perfectly fine when going forwards. Had a mechanic strip and clean out all of the dust etc. Had a new shoe fitting kit installed. It was ok for a day or so then started again. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Yes, the brake shoe clearance has to be set at the minimum and the brake edges should be chamfered (angled) where it contacts metal in either direction, the shoes get hung in reverse if they are loose because of the movement of the entire brake assy, and they kind of get cocked & locked until you apply the brake. Once the brakes are adjusted correctly, there is no room for them to lock.

Try & pull up a hair on the handbrake lightly when this happens & it should remove the bind by centering the shoes within the drum.

Minimum brake clearance is the cure. Sometiimes if parts aren't replaced, the fit isn't perfect due to the lip remaining which prevents intalling the part at minimum clearance.

good luck
