Brake Shoe Replacement (Rear) Service & Cost

What are the Brake Shoes (Rear) all about?

Brake shoes are found only at the rear wheels in cars with a drum brake system. When you step on the brake pedal, brake shoes press against the brake drums to cause friction that slows down the car. Brake shoes usually last twice as long as brake pads.

Keep in mind:

  • Both brake shoes should be replaced at the same time.
  • Damaged brake drums and leaky wheel cylinders can sometimes cause damage to brake shoes, so those elements may need replacing as well.

How it's done:

  • Inspect brake shoes for contamination and thickness.
  • Replace brake shoes if faulty.
  • Adjust the brakes.
  • Inspect springs, backing plate, brake cylinders, brake drums, and emergency brake cable.
  • Lubricate the backing plate.
  • Perform basic safety inspection, including test drive.

Our recommendation:

It is a good idea to get the brake shoes inspected and measured once a year. To inspect brake shoes, the mechanic will usually have to take the tires off. If you are getting a brake service, and if the brake shoes are still good, just have them cleaned and adjusted. Get your brake system inspected if the brake warning light is on. If the shoes need replacing, we highly recommend ceramic brake shoes.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Brake Shoes (Rear)?

  • Noise from rear brakes.
  • Hand brake does not hold.
  • Car shakes upon braking.

How important is this service?

All services associated with proper function of your brakes are important. In addition to safety issues, ignoring small repairs can quickly lead to more serious (and more expensive) problems.

You truly want John to be "Your Mechanic". I'm an intern for the Disney College Program and am away from home, so when my window became stuck and wouldn't go up I started panicking. I was hesitant at first when I was shown Your Mechanic's website, but it turned out to be a great decision. First, the website gives you an incredible play-by-play of what's happening throughout the duration of booking and completing your appointment. Secondly, not only do they give you updates on your appointment, but for someone who doesn't know much about cars I appreciated the fact that they provide you with detail on what it is your car is having an issue with and its relation to your car as a whole. John was the best mechanic I could have hoped for. He was on time and got straight to work on my car. He was both friendly and proffesional as he examined my window and explained in detail what the problem was. He took his time to explain anything I had a question about which I greatly appreciated. Not only that but once he finished up with my original service he then gave me some maintenance suggestions about my car. Usually when this happens I get the feeling that the mechanic is trying to upsell me to get more work done - this was NOT the case with John. He explained the things that should be of higher priority and why they were so important while also telling me about some additional things that should get done but why they can stand to wait a little longer. He took his time and was very patient with me throughout the entire process and I couldn't be more grateful. Overall, I was nervous about giving Your Mechanic a chance but John completely squashed that nervousness as soon as he got here. His work was professional and his demeanor was incredibly friendly and courteous. I will definitely be requesting him WHEN I book my next appointment and will be referring him to anyone I meet. Thank you again, John, for your excellent service!

Wow, Kenneth did a great job on changing the spark plugs and corresponding ignition wires. Due to it being a transverse (sideways engine) the front 3 spark plugs were fairly routine and came out most normally. However, replacing the back 3 were a hell job if there ever was one! Lower engine on that side, very limited room, stuck wires and plugs, tough angles, and obstacles blockage everywhere! Despite these, Kenneth somehow managed to get the back 3 replaced. He used every bit of his knowlege and experience as a mechanic. Really a tremendous job! Thanks very much Kenneth, you are a great mechanic!
