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 Chatham near Gillingham 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 a rotating drum-shaped part called a brake drum.

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.
