Rear drums on a L512?
I don't suppose anyone knows much about the rear drums on a L512?
Mine just failed the MOT on a brake imbalance so I'm not sure what it will need specifically yet but if anyone knows whether it's the same as another model or the part numbers for all the bits and pieces that would be really helpful
Only really 3 possibility for rear brake inbalance:
-Rear shoes needing cleaning and adjusting (most likely, my L700 failed MOT for that before)
-Rear shoes too worn (unlikely as they hardly wear on these light cars, unless high mileage)
-Rear brake cylinder leaking which contaminated the shoe material (you would see droplets of brake fluid escaping at the bottom of the drum)
Otherwise for the parts if it's for a UK spec Cuore you can find them on sites like Autodoc. the car is listed as "Cuore/Mira 4th gen 0.7 4WD 64hp"
For the japanese spec i belive the rear brakes are the same size but a different brand and mounting system.
Thanks. According to the garage it looks like the cylinders rather than the shoes; they couldn't find the part number for it and I can't find it anywhere. I know the front brakes are the same as the Move are the rears, too?
I don't know if the brake cylinders are the same as any other cars. The japanese parts catalog call for the following part #: 47550-87232
But i'm not sure if the UK spec cars use the same or not. I would recommend you to contact the Firs Garage ( www.firs-garage.com ) They are one of the few places in the UK that supply Daihatsu parts. They have been quite helpful to me before and they ship parts.
Thanks for that, it matches what my local Daihatsu garage ended up saying (although if I call them, they just tell me there's no such car, if the mechanic I go to calls them up, suddenly they can get the part number)
I did a bit of looking it up and came across some Seiken and Miyaco part numbers that should match it, and then on the Miyaco website I found this handy table... which lists it as the part number for the van, and the part number for my car as being the one from the Move... maybe I'll just get both just in case
This is driving me mad now. The cylinder has been replaced but only improved it a bit. the garage have now identified the cause of the rest of the problem as the bit that splits the lines, I've not had any luck getting the part number for that yet does anyone know if it's the same as the 850cc FWD cars?
