Hello guys, I was wondering: what's the average lifespan of the rear brake shoes?
Did any of you ever have to replace them?

thanks,

RL

Just swapped my rear shoes at 70k miles.
I can only presume they were the originals going off the fact they only had a couple of MM left in material and that the handbrake lever was seized solid on one side and hardly moved on the other.
Drums were fine with no wear lip etc - again looked to be the originals.

Funny l always get caught out with my girlfriends car she never uses the handbrake just puts the car in gear.
Luckily l put the clutch down when starting mine just in case.
The last years l do the same in Winter just use the gearbox overnight, pumping the h/b up and down a couple of times during the day to make sure it stays free.
Always spraying the cables with WD or something.

The last few (non C1) cars I have owned wont even let you start them unless you have the clutch pedal pressed down. I always park in gear and so do it as a matter of course anyway though.

It’s also good practice as you say for members that have problems selecting reverse gear, simply leave it in that gear and drive out.
I need to do that tomorrow.

You should strip, clean and inspect rather than wait for fade or other bad symptom!
But the dust needs care!
it is normal to have a wear lip, new shoes and pads simple replacement fit!

of course, I was just asking if it would make sense at my actual mileage (60K).

thanks,

Hi mileage doesn’t really come into it in my opinion, those 60.000 could be on motorways.
The only way to be really sure is to take the Drums off on both sides. That way you can give the system a though look over.

Were your drums threaded to push them off and if so what size?
