Default Handbrake Woes!

Afternoon all,

When driving back from a shopping trip today there was a sudden clunk from the rear of the car, i knew it was something to do with the rear brakes straight away. Got home and took the rear wheel off and there were bits of metal at the bottom of the disc guard. Started to lose light at that point, so though I'd go and re-attach the top of my Knuckle!!! Anyway, are the '05 plate V70's on shoes or could this be a pad that has decided to disintergrate?

Help would be much appreciated

Neil

Sounds serious! I would suspect the handbrake but as your going to have to disassemble to get to them you will be able to eliminate the pads. Needless to say the car should not be driven until checked as you could end up trashing the hub at a cost of several hundred pounds ! Good Luck.

As above really, you'll soon see if your parking brake shoes/components have given up the ghost once your rear discs are off.

How does the handbrake feel at the lever?

I wouldn't drive it either until you've had a good look in there.

Thanks for that Gents, will get the local garage out to it in the morning, at least it happened when I'd booked the week off. Nice one nick, although I do feel a little sick now, will be looking around the scrappies tomorrow I feel for that backing mould! Could always be worse I guess

I have had new shoes sat in the garage for 4 weeks now trying to get a decent day to do them. No noises or odd feeling on the handbrake BUT i know they are a real expensive weak point.


TOMORROW WITHOUT FAIL THEY ARE GETTING CHANGED!!!!!


Good Luck with yours Darryl

I would Mate, staring down the barrel of a 500 bill isn't the best feeling, C'est La Vie (I say whilst drinking a glass of cider!)

Thanks mate, could do with a little luck at the moment

Your motor is only a couple of years older than mine, out of interest what milage have you done?

Hope you get it sorted without too much bad news.

Default Separated lining

Doesn't only happen to Volvos. Had a rear brake shoe lining completely separated on my daughter's Yaris. But with conventional drum brakes, no further damage. Were checked this time last year and were fully bonded.

Just done 69k miles. There were a few warning signs that I stupidly ignored, the handbrake suddenly pulling up alot further and a funny noise when I reversed on the way out this morning, just thought it was the handbrake sticking.
