Parking brake shoes are the brake shoes that serve as your parking brake. These shoes are located inside the rear rotor on vehicles equipped with four-wheel disc brakes. These shoes can wear out over time, resulting in reduced holding ability, of the parking brake system. There is no set interval for maintenance of these shoes. They should be inspected every time the rear brakes are serviced, after a vehicle is inadvertently driven with the parking brake on, or any time there are issues with the rear braking system.
