Richard did a great job! I thought I needed new brake pads, but he showed me that it was really the brake fluid. He adjusted the back brake shoes and took me through all the steps on each tire. My brakes feel much better now.

David is wonderful, he always takes extra time with me to explain a little more about how my car works, and is always happy to help me learn how to do things myself. His honesty is outstanding, he always tells me when I booked the wrong maintenance job, usually in the category of I requested a more expensive service than was needed.

Verne had problems with a prior job but was very quick to reschedule later in the day. When arrived we discussed my job (a repair shop had given me a quote around $450.00) and he assured me that I had done the right thing in working with Your Mechanic. I can now say that Verne is the second mechanic that I have dealt with in life that has shown me that there are still mechanics that are trustworthy and honest. My job was quoted around $260.00 and all I needed was a good cleaning. Verne's work was fast, saved me money on a car with over 180,00 miles on it, and he represented himself honestly. I would highly recommend Verne to anyone, I would highly recommend Your Mechanic to anyone. What a great experience!

On time and he got down to business. I had scheduled brakes for my truck and he showed me why the rear brakes were fine just not adjusted properly which he did. He save me a few hundred dollars. Neighbors saw his work and scheduled their Jaguar to be done by James. Great find.

Adjust Drum Brakes Service

What are drum brakes all about?

In older vehicles (usually ones manufactured before 1999), the rear brakes are drum brakes. The drum is a large medal cylindrical housing with brake shoes attached to it. When you press on the brake pedal, brake fluid helps the brake shoe apply pressure to the brake drum, which slows down your vehicle. Over time, the brake drum will wear thin, as constant friction with the brake shoe wears the drum away. When this happens the drum brakes will need to be adjusted to keep them close to the shoe, so that braking is still efficient.

Keep in mind:

  • Some drum brakes systems adjust automatically.
  • When adjusting the drum brakes it’s important to check the wear and tear on both the drums and the brake shoes, to see when both will need to be replaced.

How it's done:

  • Adjust the rear drum brakes

Our recommendation:

Your entire braking system should be routinely serviced. Each component of your system, including the drum brakes, should be examined during tuneups and servicing, and you should schedule regular inspections for the braking system. The braking system is the most critical safety feature on your vehicle, so you should not postpone brake-related services.

What is a common symptom indicating you need to adjust the drum brakes?

  • Softer brake pedal

How important is this service?

Older cars rely on drum brakes for the rear wheels. Drum brakes are a large, metal cylindrical housing on each wheel that are necessary to help your vehicle slow down or stop. Attached to the drum brakes are the brake shoes. When you deploy the brake pedal, brake fluid runs to the brake shoes, and helps them apply pressure to the brake drums. The friction between the drums and the shoes slows down your vehicle. This constant friction makes the drum brakes thinner over time, as the surface layer of the drum keeps wearing off. As the drums become thinner, the space between them and the shoes grows. This distance means that the shoes do not come into as strong of contact with the drums as they normally do, and the braking system will be less efficient than normal.
