    New shoes

    I've nearly worn out my favourite Brogues, I will see if the cobbler can resole once more and stitch up where it has become undone within the pattern. However, I have been looking at replacements as well. I have been recommended Duggers of London, for £99 they look like good value - Goodyear...

    Pagid brake shoes, a cautionary tale!

    Picked up some new Pagid shoes for my S203 as the original (Galfer) ones were crumbling. They were fitted with new adjusters and cable knuckles but when I went to fit the disc both sides would not go over the shoes despite the adjusters being in their smallest position. Once removed I checked...

    rear brake shoes - the work of the devil

    Brake shoes, not something I suspect a MB owner has often met, but today I did for the first time. What a absolute sod of a job. Never again will I consider changing them, I'll happily pay the garage the 2-4 hours labour and enjoy a beer in the garden instead. /vent over :)

    E320 CDI Rear Discs/Pads And Shoes.

    Just got back from the garage having had a few jobs done and I'm pleasantly surprised at the cost. But, I'm going to need new rear discs, pads and handbrake shoes. Seems the spring came loose on the o/s handbrake shoes and that was what caused the handbrake to fail. Worse still, the shoes...

    E320 CDI Handbrake Brake Shoes.

    After full adjustment at the drums the shoes still don't hold the car when the handbrake is applied. The foot pedal is firm and the hand release is at a good tension so: If the adjustment is made at the drums is there any adjustment I can make on the cable under the back seat that will...

    New Shoes W202

    As I was struggling to find a matching wheel when repairing the car after its accident, I bought a set from a local wheel distributor. I wanted a set of genuine AMG wheels ideally but as I have just comeback from my honeymoon which was over New Year , the funds are a little tight. So I opted...

    Why can't I buy quality British-made shoes at a reasonable price that fit properly any more? For many years I've worn Barker shoes in a "G" fitting that fit like a glove, but Barker's products have fallen off a cliff in the last five years both in breadth of range and quality of product. Loake's...
