Squealing brakes

Recommended Posts

I have just been informed at my 1 year service that I need a new brake drum and shoes (under warranty).

Apparently, ALKO have had a batch of shoes which are too hard and these have scored the drum?

I never had these problems with cars years ago - I am old enough to have owned cars with drum brakes all round, and I never had problems like these.

Fitting new shoes meant tapering off the leading edge etc prior to fitting to give a nice "lead in" on the shoe, it also prevented squealing.

Am I being "sold a story" here?
