    Default Rear Brakes

    I thought at a little over 220 000km, it was probably time to replace my rear drums.

    Well went off to GoldWagen and got all the bits and bobs for around 3 000 of my ronts, and after taking off the drums discovered that the existing drums are in fine fettle still!


    How long do these things last? I drive mostly empty - 1 up, but do tow the boat around the country at times. Really thought that as this stage I would need to replace, but I will put them back on the shelf and keep them a while longer!

    Maybe your rear brake compensator not working properly and you only have front brakes

    My experience is that VW rear brake shoes last a loong time. A VW service adviser once told me that they only start inspecting the rear brake shoes from 150k/km. Also I am sure that having your old shoes rebonded would have cost you less.

    Replaced mine at R 230 000 km. If I recall they were getting close to finished, but not critical.
