hello all looking for advice on changing pads and shoes on my 06 berlingo van
When doing rear shoes , take both drums off and work on one side at a time so have a reference to how they go back together again.
Buy yourself an impact screwdriver as they make short work of taking drums and discs off especially if the screws holding them on are seized.
Don't forget to release the handbrake when trying to take the rear drum off as it is a bugger to remove when the handbrake is on :-[
Thor hammer is useful when tapping the rear drum to release it
Haynes manual is a useful resource (although not as good as it used to be)
Buy the best pads and shoes you can afford, don't skimp on something which is a safety critical piece of kit
Apply a good smear of copper grease to the rear of the pads to stop them squealing
That's a few for starters
Hello studboy welcome to the forum. As the man said and allow plenty of time
As above but peek under the cylinder end boots to check for leaks.We don't want brake fluid on our nice new shoes,do we?:thumbsup:
