Service

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.

Volkswagen R32 - Oil Change - Irving, Texas
The promotion for the bargain priced oil change got me to try the service, but my mechanic, Jeremiah Laroe, will be the the part that makes me use the service again. Jeremiah is a great asset to your company. Some mechanics might know cars as well as Jeremiah does, but very few mechanics can explain things in easy to understand terms like he does, and virtually no mechanics have his people skills.

Volkswagen Jetta - Brake Shoes (Rear) - Los Altos, California
I am deeply frustrated with YourMechanic company. I was charged $75 for the inspection and that was NOT applied towards a fix job of the brakes. I have called 4 times to discuss this. The first time I talked with the Customer Service rep. and he said that my contact person would call me back. Nobody called. Next day, I called and left a message and phone number. Still no return call. Next day left another voice message. A day later still no call. Just called and left a 3rd message. Today is now Friday and this has been going on since Monday. I deeply regret having recommended this company "YourMechanic" to family and friends. If this issue is not resolved to my satisfaction, I will certainly notify EVERYONE to NOT (at any cost) use or call YourMechanic to have work done on a car.
