2003 Liberty rear brake shoes Emergency brake.

Hi ,

I noticed my handbrake was not working well on my jeep.

my dealer advised me the Shoes are finished and springs are busted.

To replace 600$...because lots of time and labor..

This must be nuts. They are telling me they need to remove the Diff for this??

what are they talking about?

I'm in the same boat. The last time I brought mine into a local 4x4 shop, and asked them to check the e-brake. He found the shoes were in pieces! They have to drain the diff and remove the axles in order to fix the parking brake. Then buy new fluid + friction modifier additive. He quoted me $350+ to fix it, and they only charge $50/hour labor. I opted to wait until I have some extra $ and will do it when my diff needs to be flushed/filled.

Something sounds strange to me. Maybe the '05 is different, but I was able to get to the e-brake shoes by removing the rear disk (which has the e-brake drum built into it). There was no diff or diff fluid involved at all. Unfortunately, the e-brake doesn't work much better than before. It really looks like a Rube Goldberg setup.

I just feel as if I don't have a parking e-brake at all. I mine as well just put it in Park and forget about using it because it rolls back either way.

You do not need to do that!. I just changed my parking brakes on my 03 libby - they were in pieces too. The assembly is inside of the rear rotor. Kind of a pain to get the springs back together, but not really that bad. take a picture before maybe.

Axle removal is the easiest and fastest way to replace the parking brakes.
