Well done finding it. Must have been the shoe grabbing the drum early causing the car to pull from the rear brakes. A run on the MOT brake rollers would have helped narrow that down to a rear problem.

I agree Tom itís strange that it passed an mot about 4 weeks before. I still donít know what caused the bend. I will put it down the previous owners as the last mot in 2011 showed a failure on front and rear brakes. I also noticed that on of the shoes had picked what looked like rust. I wanted to run the car for a few miles and then change the braking material using the old stuff to clean up the surfaces.
I recon the design makes it sensitive a rear issue effecting the front. Iím still happy as now it has a week serviced braking system, that canít be a bad thing.

I run a supercharger and I don't care the TB is on the wrong side.
