The Basics Behind Rear Drum Brake Repair Services

Some vehicles have rear drum brakes which are typically made up of wheel cylinders, self-adjusters, brake drums, springs, and shoes. When the rear drum brake system is disengaged, the brake shoes will sit against the drum. Once the rear drum brake is engaged, the wheel cylinders are pressed against the brake shoes and the brake drum, generating friction that brings the vehicle to a stop. When the brakes are released the springs cause the brake shoes to revert to their original position against the drum. The brake shoes are then maintained in their position by the self-adjusters. Over time and with continued use, the brake shoes will wear, and the self-adjusters will push the brake shoes closer to the brake drum. This is why you must repair and replace your drum brakes regularly.

Why Should You Have Rear Drum Brake Repair Services Performed

Due to the heat and friction generated, the continued use of rear drum brakes can cause the brake components to wear and tear. Damaged brake shoes may produce screeching, grinding or squealing noises which will signal the driver that the rear drum brakes need repair or replacement. If the self-adjusters ate poorly lubricated, or the springs are worn, the brake shoes will get damaged quickly. Too much wear within the rear drum brake system could be a sign that there are more significant issues with drum brake components such as the wheel cylinders and springs. For instance, excessive rear brake damage could be caused by insufficient brake fluid in the wheel cylinders or worn springs. Worn drum brakes are dangerous for both the driver and the passengers and must, therefore, be replaced or repaired ASAP.
