sargan added a question in WorkshopBrakes locking on reversingTwin axles ... with Alko brakes,.
Driving fwd bakes fine, hand brake fine .... so pretty sure brake adjustment at drums all OK.
When I reverse (esp if up incline) brakes lock on.
If I decouple the hitch, and push manually will go backwards fine ... so it must be related to the push rod activation .... and whatever it does to Alko reverse override.
Any suggestions ?

sargan added a topic in Tow CarsWarning of KIA Sorento towing issueIf you have a heavy rig to tow ... you might like to be aware that the manual Sorento has significant issues with Dual Mass Flywheel slip.
KIA have now accdepted there is a problem ... no outcome yet ...
If you have or are considerring a Sorento worth taking a look at:
My Sorento is comfortable, tows well on flat, but struggles with burning clutch on hill starts or reversing up even a slight slope.
The Hyundia Santa Fe which is a sibling car sharing many componets and made in same factory has even had DMF chnaged to standard clutch on some cars ..
Take a look at attached doc.
