The garage is talking bollocks. The shoes are used for the handbrake, nothing more, so unless you drive around with the handbrake on there should be no wear to the shoes. Pads and disc swap on a lift is less than an hour.

Yes - discs and pads for braking, then shoes inside the hub for the parking brake. Because the shoes aren't ever used for normal braking they should last the life of the car.

Recently changed all discs and pads, rear handbrake shoes were as new but handbrake has never been exceptional from new. Spec is to adjust up to lock wheel and back off 8 teeth, adjusted mine to 5 no binding and a much better result, went through MOT just after with no problems.

Just had another quote from concordeautocentre.....225 for discs, pads, sensor (no shoes)...pagid or OE equivalent. Seems more realistic and will probably go with them now.

You know anyone in Leicester ?
