Just overhauling a drum brake rear axle,  Fitting new drums, shoes and fitting kit (Girling type)

 

When I stripped down the old brakes (axle has been stored for a while and brakes too rusty) there were 4 springs, in the new standard fitting kit there are only 3, there seems to be 4th longer spring not in the kit and the existing are a bit too past it.

 

Any ideas where I can get the 4th spring from or a complete kit. Its NFP as far as I can see

4 spring does not sound like a gti  girling type rear drum.

Bendix as found on base models have 4 springs.

most Motorfactors do Apec, Bremtech and Delphi.

 

probably the only occasion I would ever use Apec :lol:

Thanks for the reply welshpug.

 

Think problem solved - I took a photo as I stripped it down - Just realized what the 4th spring was on the photo.

 

Its the spring tensioner at the end of the handbrake cable!!

 

Should be OK now
