Good Luck with yours Darryl


Well, they are DONE!!!!!!!!!!


Sods law strikes though. My car is a 2006 S60 D5 with 61k on the clock.

Got the rear brakes stripped down and ALL of the shoes were perfect with loads of life left in them and more importantly no signs of delamination.

That made no difference though as i had no intention of spending that time and not fitting the news shoes so in they went.

Handbrake readjusted and all tickety boo.

What gets me is how Volvo can allow a consistently poorly constructed product to be fitted in spite of the number of catastrophic failures????????????

Feeling on a roll i replaced the front pads as i knew they were getting well down and i had a new set on the shelf in the garage.

Not a bad mornings work ,so ready for a well earned cup of tea.

Good luck with yours Neil and hope that it sounds more serious than it actually is but give us an update.


Cheers Darryl

You did have a productive morning my friend! It went in to my mates garage this morning, not heard anything back so hoping it's not as bad as I thought, he's going to take it out for a drive and test the brakes as they are shockingly bad normally. I put it down to it being a very heavy car so will wait and see what he says, will keep you updated mate

Darryl,
I did my handbrake shoes a few months ago on a 04, but I re-used the original springs (they seemed OK) but should I have replaced them as well?

thanks
rich

Hi Rich,

You should be fine

Confirmed today that I need a new Hub Assembly at 360! Anyone have a spare one I can buy off them? ha ha. Got in contact with RUFE and Gavin, hopefully one of them can do it a little cheaper, will try a few breakers yards tomorrow, I've had some rotten luck with brakes recently, 750 worth of calipers on my Mazda 6 and now this, I guess they're quite essential though

Mine went catastrophically wrong about 10 days ago. I didn't have any warning - just pulled out of a parking space and it went bang - although my wife told me later that there was a horrible grinding noise a few days before but it went away after a few minutes - I'm assuming that was the shoes disintegrating.

Needed everything. Local kwik-fit type place that it happened outside of quoted 1600 and that they wouldn't bother with the value of the car (2001 v70 2.4(170)SE with 80k).

Took it to the independent I usually use and he said it would be 998 including all new Volvo parts. Managed to get the hub casting and backplate for 72 all in so I'm down to about 500.

Not great but a whole lot better than 1600!

Yes, if you can get used parts cheap enough it is a relatively quick and easy task to do yourself stripping the old off and reassembling the new.

It still sounds as though you are being charged an awful lot for labour if your bill is 500.
