How much does a Brake Drum Replacement cost?

The cost of a brake drum replacement depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your brake drum replaced by Clickmechanic, by selecting your car below!

What does a Brake Drum do?

Some older cars will have brake drums at the rear wheels, some will have drums at the front too. The brake drum is a unit mounted inside a wheel rim on the wheel hub. The drum packs a couple of brake shoes that press against the inside of the drum if you apply the brake, in turn the car is able to slow down.

How do you know there is something wrong with a Brake Drum?

  • When the hand brake does not work properly.
  • When there is a squeaking noise coming from a corner of the car (brakes).
  • When the car pulls to the right or left under braking.
  • When the car becomes unstable under braking.
  • When the car appears to suffer from excessive brake fade.

When should you consider replacing a Brake Drum?

Brake drums, like brake discs, can wear out, they can be especially affected by the heat generated when braking, which causes the drums to deteriorate (brake fade). Eventually the brake drums lose so much of their functionality that they cannot slow the car down efficiently anymore.

Servicing the brake drums is key to make sure the components do not wear out prematurely. Always service the brakes according to the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer. In cases that the brake drums are damaged or have worn out prematurely it is important you have the drums inspected and replaced as soon as possible. Should you experience issues with the drums like those mentioned earlier it is advisable you get in touch with an expert who can help solve the problem.

What happens during a Brake Drum replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the brakes, drums and brake shoes.
  • Mechanic will establish if the brake drum's thickness is within the required tolerances.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the brake drum.
  • Mechanic will advise if other parts of the braking system need replacing too.
  • Mechanic will test drive the car and inspect the brake system again.
  • Mechanic will make adjustments if necessary.
