I am looking for the rear E-brake shoes.My dealer wants $195?Is this normal?
I just want my brake light to go out,so I will take the bulb out until I get new pads I guess.

ya, well thats the right dealership price then. They usually charge $90 for a set.

I would just go after market, Your not gonna notice that much of a difference.

I replaced all my rotors (drilled / slotted) and pads (front and rears) for only $350.

I think the e-brake shoes are dealer only?All other brake parts I can get anywheres else,which I did.I was hoping I could find a cheaper solution for the e-brake pads since I don't really need them.

I just don't want to spend $200 on them because I really don't need them and I am cheap.And they are still useable I just thought it would be nice to get new ones.Plus I spent $6000 already getting the car ready for the summer.I do have a cool video doing the rear pads.Did you know you can change the rear pads in about 5 minutes both sides!!!Well if you have 19 inch rims that is,you don't even need to take the wheels off:jawDrop: I thought that was pretty cool

if thats the case

Just adjust the little gear inside the drum. Crank that shit all the way =P

Its safe to assume you got an E-Shift right?

LOL, or do it the CHEAP MAN'S WAY.....adjust the bolt behind the e-brake handle

btw, how did your e-brake wear out? those should last the lifetime of the car.

1. Where you drifting with ur car using e-brake to slide
2. someone left e-brake on while driving? odd but there is a CHIME if its left on.

I messed mine up too.
The shoe was sitting in a groove that was inside the rotor and when I yanked it off, I messed it up.

I didn't bother replacing them, it doesn't work, but I don't have a light on the dash either.

Isn't the light triggered from the brake handle?

On one of my family's older car... we had a parking brake shoe that was worn out. The parking brake wasn't adjusted properly... so one of the shoes would rub against the inside of the rotor while driving. Eventually there was a loud squeaking sound as you were driving. Turning out the friction material on the edge of one of the shoes wore off... and the metal backing of the parking brake show was rubbing against the metal of the rotor. You could actually see where the parking brake shoe was cutting into the rotor. :blush:

As others said... this doesn't mean your need new parking brake shoes... just adjust the cable!
