i just replaced mine a couple weeks ago and for someone who has never done it before it was quit simple, remove your wheel, remove caliper by loosening the bolts ( make sure you dont completely disconnect the caliper just loosen Enough to release it from rotor) once u get caliper off its very simple since brake pads just slide on and off pull off old brake pads and replace with new ones, be sure to check pads for L and R on them so u know u are putting correct pads on the correct sides and then reconnect everything and bleed Your brakes to release any air bubbles that may be in the line that will cause brake problems.....

Remove the tire and wheel. The brake shoes are held in place by a spring. Remove the brake shoe spring. The brake shoes will come off. Reverse the process to install the new brake shoes.

After determining if your vehicle has disc or drum brakes, look up the specs in your car manual. Follow the instructions. If you have difficulty, take vehicle to a qualified mechanic.

Rear brakes use a 2-stage rotor. Interior of rotor has a brake drum effect with brake shoes Adjust these brake shoes carefully because there is some expansion with friction heat and may cause brakes to drag

Jack up rear of vehicle, remove drum, then remove brakes shoes and emergency brake cable. This is complicated and really cannot be done by an amateur without consulting the manual which has numerous photos and diagrams.

The brake pads are actually shoes. The emergency brake relies on the rear brake shoes being applied by tension on the emergency brake cable against the rear drums to hold the car stationary. In other words, the rear brakes double as the emergency (parking) brakes.

This will greatly depend on what kind of brakes you have and which parts you are trying to replace. Do you have disc or drum brakes? If you have disc brakes, do you want to replace the calipers, pads, or rotors? If you have drum brakes, do you want to replace the drum, or the shoes?

1998 GM Saturn (all models) have rear brake shoes

The best place to have your brakes replaced at would be Midas they would be able to replace both your brake shoes and even brake calibers if they need replaced.

If the truck has disc brakes on the rear then the park brake shoes are located inside the rear rotors. You have to remove the brake calipers, pads and rotors to access them

User Avatar

you will have a spring at top of brake shoes from shoe to shoe across the wheel cylinder.another spring across the bottom of shoes across the adjuster. hope this helps.

Front pads (disc brakes) Rear shoes (drum brakes)

User Avatar

Brakes shoes are those parts that are located on the back of the brakes to help keep the drums and rotors in place. Some cars has wheel cylinders and others have brake shoes.

No. You will only need to replace the brake shoes if they are worn down. Generally the front brakes do 70% of braking leaving the rear with 30%, which will cause the front pads to wear first. What is important however is that you replace either front brakes or rear brakes as a set. i.e. if you're replacing the front brakes do the right and left side.

Remove the tire and wheel from your Chevrolet Avalanche. Remove the brake spring and caliper. The brake shoes will come off. Reverse the process to install the new brake shoes.

I am working on this myself right now. I have replaced the master cylinder, lines, shoes, and calipers. The problem persists. I am going to try sanding and lubing the ways on the calipers today. There is nothing else to fix. I found an article in a Dodge forum that suggested this in the most detailed fix i have found.

They are inside the drum part of the rear disc brakes. Remove the rotor and you will see the shoes.

User Avatar

The BEST way is to remove the wheel, pop off the drum and measure the surface area of the shoes. My best guess is 10's; however, if you want the sure answer...

pad brakes are disc brakes, it's known as changing brake pads for disc setup and changing brake shoes with drum brake setup.

brake shoes are used with drum brakes and are " spread out " when the brake pedal is applied ( brake shoes are used for the rear brakes on 1991 to 1994 Ford Explorers ) brake pads are used with disc brakes and squeeze on both sides of the brake rotor when the brake pedal is applied ( 1995 and newer Ford Explorers have disc brakes front and rear )
