Want to learn more about Handbrake Shoe replacements?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does a Handbrake Shoe do?

When you pull the handbrake lever in your car the handbrake shoes, located inside the wheels of the car, will be pushed against the brake discs, in turn locking the discs into place and preventing the car's wheels from moving. If your car has brake drums then the drum's brake shoes normally act as handbrake shoes.

How do you know there is something wrong with the Handbrake shoe?

  • When the 'handbrake' warning light is on (provided your car has such a light).
  • When the car rolls or moves despite having engaged the handbrake.
  • When the hand brake appears to be stuck and doesn't release.

When should you consider a Handbrake shoe replacement?

Over time the handbrake shoe's condition is prone to deterioration. This can be identified by a moving or rolling car despite having the handbrake engaged. If you experience any problems with the handbrake it is advisable to have it inspected and, if necessary, replace the brake shoes.

Servicing the handbrakes regularly is key to ensure an extended working life. Always replace the handbrake shoes as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during a Handbrake Shoe replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the hand brake system.
  • If necessary, the hand brake shoes will be replaced.
  • Mechanic will calibrate the hand brake.
  • Mechanic will test the hand brake.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will make any adjustments to optimise the operation of the handbrake.

How much does a Handbrake Shoe Replacement cost?

The cost of a handbrake shoe 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 handbrake shoe replaced by Clickmechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page!
