2022-09-08

Hello everyone, when should we change the car brake shoes?The brake shoes of the car should be replaced at about 100,000 kilometers. Brake shoe refers to the accessory that is pushed outward by the action of the brake cam or the push rod to suppress the brake drum and act as a brake. It is installed on the brake drum and is one of the key safety parts in the automobile braking system. Here's how to replace the brake shoes:

1. Before replacing the brake pads, you should open the cover of the brake fluid reservoir in the engine compartment and check the height of the brake fluid page. If the brake fluid page is above the maximum limit, you should suck out some brake fluid to prevent Brake fluid overflows during replacement;

2. Prepare the brake pad to be replaced, and remove the wheel where the brake is located. Avoid scratching the rim during dismantling;

3. Use a wrench combined with the sleeve to remove the bolt of the brake caliper, and then remove the brake pad (if there is a brake sensor line, remove the brake sensor line first). Observe whether the brake pads are excessively worn or cracked, and if so, replace them in the next step;

4. Since the brake caliper will have a lot of sand or mud, it should be cleaned with a rag, and then applied with silencer paste to prevent abnormal noise when braking;

5. Use the piston pressure pump to press the piston to the position where it cannot be pressed, and then install the brake pad on the brake caliper. After installing the new brake pad in place (the brake sensor line should also be installed), tighten the guide bolts, installed;

6. After the installation is complete, cover the lid of the fluid tank, step on the brake pedal a few times in the car, and reset the brake. Then observe the brake fluid height, it should be within the appropriate height range;

7. After the replacement, conduct a test drive to check whether the braking effect is reflected.
