Where did you jack the car for the rear rotor repair?

Awesome job dude.

It's a wear indicator it's not a slide pin.

And everyone should use your parking brake it may save your life someday.

I wanted to see how you pulled the Back Rotor off.

Bill McDavid says:

Awesome video, thank you for your help.

Joseph Barr says:

This was a pretty good demo/explanation in that you showed what was underneath the rotor. I just pulled my driver's side rear rotor off (took everything I had plus half a can of PB Blaster), and wasn't totally sure what I was looking at. I've seen brake shoes (drum brakes) before, but maybe I just forgot that was how they do the parking brake as well.

And yeah, as luck would have it, the material is worn and loose on the rear portion of that shoe. Question: if I decide to leave it as is, is that parking brake shoe going to give me any trouble as far as noise or grinding/rubbing?

Like you, I don't actually use it, so don't care if it's less effective than it should be. But this is what my wife drives, so if it feels "off" in any way, I'll be back in the garage fixing the damn thing again.

Tim Vandenbrink says:

Well done. Thank you!
