The vehicle uses a standard/simple drum brake system which is cable operated. There is an adjustment procedure but that normally isn't required once fitted correctly as there should be little to no wear on the system unless you are in the habit of driving with the parking brake engaged or apply it before the vehicle is stationary.

It shouldn't be expensive to repair, but needs investigating as it could be a cable fault or something within the drum brake assembly.

... I think mine needed a new cable.

About £200 'ish, I think, with fitting?
