Are they Brake Shoes or Break Shoes?
The correct spelling is brake shoes but we have noticed that in a lot of Tuk Tuk groups in the Philippines people are spelling it break shoes.
When is it time to replace the Brake Shoes
If you hear a screeching or squealing noise it is a when you brake it is an indication that your brake shoes need replacing.
This noise is caused by the compound on the brake shoes becoming hard and glazed or because the compound has warn away so when you brake metal is hitting metal.
When you hear it regularly while braking, it’s likely time to bring your TVS King into a Tuk Tuk 3-Wheelers for an inspection.
Wet Weather and Brake Shoes
When your TVS King is exposed to damp or wet conditions, such as in rainy season or if you have been through a flood, a thin layer of dust can form on the brake pads of your TVS King and cause a very similar screeching sound while braking.
If the noise disappears after braking a few times it is a sign that it was just a build-up of dust and you should be OK, if you feel unsure please contact Tuk Tuk 3-Wheelers to have your brakes inspected, it is better to be safe than sorry.
If you hear the sound of metal against metal you should change your brake shoes immediately, as not only will it do damage to your brake drums and cost a lot more in the long run.
