If the screw head breaks off, the parking brake shoe retainer clip can become dislodged and could result in the parking brake dragging and/or failure of the parking brake to properly hold. Seizure of the parking brake shoe, especially on wet or snow covered roads, could result in lockup of one of the rear wheels.
