Question about 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara
Have just finished stripping the offending right rear side and reassembling.
The problem appears to have been the cam on the end of the handbrake lever.
Took it out, it is sprung and can be pushed back against the little stop bar. Reassembled with the cam right back and the tongue on the end at right angles through the relevant slot in the backing plate and lining. Slacken off the adjuster and refit the drum, removing and replacing after taking the adjustment up until you have a firm but not tight fit. Replace wheel and road test as I have just done for about 20 km forward and backwards. Seems to be perfect now. Can only wait and see if the problem recurs. Was only the one wheel, other one still as good as new. Hope this helps someone else.
