What does a handbrake shoe do?

Handbrake shoes are very similar to brake shoes but are used inside the brake discs on vehicles that have rear brake pads and discs.

How does a handbrake shoe work?

When you pull or electronically activate the parking brake in your car the handbrake shoes, located inside the discs, will be forced against the internal surface and thus prevent the wheel from turning.

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

  • When the vehicle 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.

How common is handbrake shoes replacement?

As the sole function of these parts is to lock a wheel in place once it is stationary, there is very little actual wear on them. Over time though they can disintegrate with age, but it is very rare.

How can I extend the life of my handbrake shoes?

There is only one thing to remember and that is to make sure the vehicle is already stationary before applying the handbrake, as this will prevent any actual frictional wear.

What happens during a Handbrake Shoe replacement?

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