Defender 110 brakes

Hi all,

I am going to tackle the front and back brakes today, I have a kit for the
front. Is it a difficult job? Pads and shoes is all I am doing. How many
hours should I alllow?

Yours

The front is easy - wheel off, remove fitting kit pins, remove
pads, push in caliper pistons (making sure the other one doesn't
pop out - a bit of wood helps), insert new pads and fit fitting kit.
If the pistons are not stubborn, about 15-20 mins a side.

The rears can be a pain if the drums don't come off easily,
but replacing the shoes is only fiddly (getting the springs in the right
place) rather than difficult - a pair of mole grips or pipe grips
with a rag round them to pull the shoes about is a good idea.
Mind those fingers!
Just keep an eye on the cylinders - they pistons don't usually
pop out, but it can happen.
Re-assemble, set the adjustement (spinning the wheel by hand), then
go for a short run (remembering that you may not have any brakes!)
and then re-adjust.
Drive carefully for a few miles while the pads/shoes bed in,
idealy then re-checking the adjustment.
Allow at least an hour a side on the rear and get a stock of Language
in if the drums are stuck.

Front pads, 10-20 minutes per side. same for rear but if they are
drums it could take a LONG time to get the drum off


Regards.
Mark.

and a bit more if the adjusters have fallen apart, as one of mine had.
