Hi guys, dodgy rear brakes, we need help!!

We have a fiat doblo jtd1.9 turbo van on a 55 plate
We are getting a grinding noise from the rear of the van, when you press the brake pedal and when you lift the handbrake (both at slow speeds)
We only ever carry two collies back and to, to the nature reserve so it is nothing to do with weight, the nosie is driving me nuts.
The shoes are okay, but we have just bought new ones to fit,
this is daunting as I am being told there is an automatic adjustor that we have to reset, is this the case.
We have always done our own cars and hubbie is an ex mechanic but well retired so not seen anything like this before.
Any help would be appreciated. Kind regards..............

Hi
thanks for the advice

We have put new shoes on now, so we will see what she is like when she goes for a run tomorrow.
The mileage is 55k

Re: Hi guys, dodgy rear brakes, we need help!!

New brake linings are composite & sometimes these can sound terrible until they have 'bed in'. Sometimes the noise never goes away at low speeds.
It may also be a touch of corrosion inside the drum which is being rubbed as the new shoes will not be touching the same part of the drum as the old shoes - or maybe even the new shoes are slightly wider than the olds?
