Frequently asked questions about brake drum replacement, repair & inspections in Bristol

Read our answers to questions about brake drum replacement costs, symptoms and more.

How do you know there is something wrong with the brake drums?

Due to the wear areas being inside the drum and therefore invisible, it is difficult to ascertain whether there is an issue or not. Therefore we recommend having an inspection carried out by a mechanic if you have any concerns.

When should you consider changing the brake drums?

In reality, only when advised to do so by a mechanic after an inspection or during a brake shoe replacement.

Brake drums are supplied and fitted in axle pairs (i.e. rear). It is equally important to have new brake shoes fitted at the same time otherwise any wear pattern on the shoes from the previous drums could severely reduce the contact area between the two. This is so important that no mechanic would consider doing otherwise.

What happens when brake drums are replaced?

  • Mechanic will remove the brake drum and inspect the brake shoes, wheel cylinder and actuating mechanism.
  • Mechanic will establish if the brake drum's thickness is within the required tolerances.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the brake drum along with a new set of brake shoes.
  • 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.
