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.

Jeff changed my oil pretty quickly even though my Mercedes is a bit of a hassle to deal with. Additionally, he helped me figure out that the reason my car wasn't changing gears is most likely because it does not have enough transmission fluid. On top of that, he was very friendly and provided me with awesome customer service- and now I know exactly what I need to get services to get my car back in action!

Rocco
17 years of experience
Rocco came to my home to check out my car since it would not start. I did not want to go through the hassle of having to tow it to a repair shop and wait around. I had a problem with my starter. With repairs like this you would think you'd have to go to a repair shop but I'm relieved I was able to have it fixed at my home from someone professional. He came and checked out my problem (which took less than an hour), provided an estimate along with how much time/labor would be involved and the next day came and made the repair. And I was able to save time without waiting around for other customers and cars ahead of mine like at a shop. I'd definitely use the service and call him again in the future :)

Theodore
11 years of experience
I was very impressed with Theodore. I took a chance on using this mobile mechanic site and was nervous at what to expect. He came on time, did a really good inspection and made recommendations what I needed. I booked him because my driver side window was making a funny noise and I thought I needed to change the motor. He spent a good amount of time looking into the issue and explaining to me as he went along. I will highly recommend and plan on using him again.
