Brake shoe replacement

Brake shoe replacement

Brake drums are commonly applied on the car's rear axle. One of the key elements of this type of braking system are brake shoes. They are applied both in the main and the parking brake, hence it is very important to have them replaced regularly to keep the entire braking system operational. A malfunction of the parking brake or uneven distribution of the braking power on the rear axle mean that the lining needs to be taken care of. Brake shoes and drums are not exposed to as big a load as the discs and pads and need replacing after 100 thousand kilometres.
