Brake Problems - '00 No ABS, Rear Drums

I just had everything inspected in my car, fliuds changed etc and it was running great. Then I had to take it to get a Virginia Safety inspections. The guy took off the rear driver's side wheel and then took apart the entire drum assembly and loosened the cable for the e-brake since he couldn't get the shoe back on otherwise as it was too "tight". When I went to drive the car after he messed with it, it makes a clicking noise as I apply moderate brake pressure. The clicking is audible from 20mph-0 and occurs probably 2/sec until the car comes to a stop. Any ideas?

It may be something with the adjuster on the rear drum. Many times with drum brakes you have to back of the adjuster to get the drum off, not ussually the e brake cable, the adjuster is within the brake assembly. The adjusters self adjust ussually when you are backing up and braking. If you haven't worked on brakes I would have some one make sure they are adjusted properly or take it back to the inspection station as they were the ones that messed with it. You can try backing up and braking some but they don't always work if things are dirty.

Thanks for the advice. I took it back to him once because when he initially inspected it, I went to park on a hill and the e brake went all the way up till it hit the top of the range, and i was still rolling back on a hill. I don't think the guy knew what he was doing. He could barely drive my manual and had me back it up after he stalled once. Then he was hitting the shoe with a sledge hammer when he couldn't get it back on.

DAYUM!! Makes me wonder how many other people's "cars" he has messed up. I'd definitely complain about it to them and get it fixed though...u don't want to walk out of the store one day and find your Jeep leaned against a light pole at the egde of the street because your e-brake didn't work. Yep, that happened to me quite a few years back. Thought it had been stolen until I saw it out by the street on the edge of traffic.
