Drum brake service tips training video-The Trainer Series
Duration: 08 minutes and 18 seconds
The invention of the modern automotive drum brake is credited to a man by the name of Louis Renault, circa 1902. They are a system even the oldest among us have grown up with. And they haven't changed all that much over the years.
Most current makes rely more on disc brake systems to haul the car down to a stop and for a variety of very good reasons. But you will still find many models using drum brakes to provide the stopping power on the rear wheels. And due to their design and/or lack of routine maintenance, drum brakes are often not contributing their fair share of stopping power.
In this edition of The Trainer video series, Motor Age technical editor Pete Meier will show you how they work and share some tips on the "do's and don'ts" of their service and repair.
