How to identify a faulty parking brake shoes kit

Usually, the components are diagnosed during comprehensive check of the parking brake serviceability. It is performed in several stages. First, set the vehicle on the slope of 25°. You can use a car ramp or a loading ramp with the height of 1.25 m and the incline length of  5 m. Then move the parking brake lever by 2-8 teeth of the ratchet mechanism, depending on the brand and the model of your vehicle. If the elements of the unit are OK, the vehicle can stay on the slope for a long time.

If you don't have a ramp, you can perform the check on a level ground as well. To do so, move the parking brake lever by 2-3 teeth, and lift the rear part of the vehicle with a jack. If the parking brake mechanism is OK, rotating the wheel will require significant effort.

To check efficiency of the parking brake mechanism without a jack, tighten the lever until stop, engage the first gear and smoothly release the clutch. The engine should stop.

If faults are detected in the mechanism operation, inspect the brake shoes visually, and assess the level of their damage. You will have to remove the wheel and disassemble the drum. Uneven wear, scuffs on the surface, loose attachment or displacement of the friction linings indicate the need to replace the components.

You may notice that the brake shoes kit needs diagnostics by the following symptoms:

  • extraneous sounds heard from the rear suspension when driving;
  • increased travel of the parking brake lever;
  • significantly decreased efficiency of the parking brake.

The reasons for malfunction of a parking brake shoes kit

Parking brake shoes are designed for the entire service life of the vehicle, so they require replacement very rarely. Usually, this need is caused by violating the rules of vehicle use, particularly, by driving with the applied lever, or by using the "controlled skidding", which is often used in drifting.

Sometimes, components fail due to emergency braking, when the parking brake is used to stop the vehicle instead of the service brake. In addition, uneven wear of friction linings may be caused by installation errors.

Replacing a parking brake shoes kit

The components are not subject to repair, therefore faulty components are to be replaced. The process of new components installation is simple, but very time consuming. If you do not have relevant skills and time, ask specialists for help.

If you decide to replace the components yourself, use the following instructions:

  1. Lift the car with a jack, and secure it in place using wheel chocks.
  2. Release the parking brake system lever.
  3. Remove the rear wheel, brake disc or drum, and the caliper.
  4. Dismantle the brake shoe release spring using a special remover.
  5. First, remove one and then the second brake shoe hold-down pin. To do so, turn it 90° after compressing the hold-down spring with a wrench.
  6. Disconnect the shoes, and remove them.
  7. Check the state of the adjuster, lubricate its pin and the contacting surfaces with a thin layer of lubricant.
  8. Lubricate the adjustment screw.
  9. Install everything in place in reverse order.

Before replacing, carefully read recommendations of the vehicle manufacturer, since the installation procedure may be different, depending on the make and the model of the vehicle.
