Brake Drums


Has your vehicle got brake judder or a grinding noise?

This could be that your brake drums are oval and worn out and need to be replaced. Auto Experts Medway in Gillingham near Chatham in Medway can deal with all your vehicles braking needs.

How Brakes Work:

A drum brake is a brake that uses friction caused by a set of shoes that press against the rotating brake drums.

The brake shoes contain a friction material. The wheel cylinder presses the brake shoes against the smooth rotating brake drum when the driver operates the brake pedal. The friction between the brake shoes pressing against the rotating brake drum slows the vehicle down

Vehicles suffering with brake judder may have an out of shape oval brake drum. The correct way to cure this fault would be to replace the worn out parts. Similarly if you can hear a grinding noise when you apply the brakes.

Contact us and we can check your vehicle thoroughly. Our workshop in Gillingham is close to Chatham in the centre of Medway. Our Technicians are fully equipped to replace parts on all makes of vehicles that are on the road today.
