Hello all, good to be able to join the forum. I live in the Auvergne region of France & have recently bought a 2018 L200 from a farmer. Have now spent a couple of weeks cleaning it & tidying up the bodywork. A quick question as I haven't been able to get hold of a workshop manual yet. Does anyone know if the rear drum brakes are self adjusting or do they need to be adjusted manually?
Many thanks
Alan

the k74 and b40 have "clickers" on the back side of the drum, id assume series 5 will too,

you can easily judge slack by how high u can pull the handbrake  Wink

Thanks, I took out the rubber bung on the back of the drum but couldn't find any sign of the cog so I think they may be self adjusting.. Have adjusted the handbrake.

if they have the rubber oval then there should be something behind it,

it may be a little way in lol
