Rear brake backing plates on Range Rover Sport, LR3 and LR4 are common wear items, and they often rot out through prolonged exposure to salty winter roads or in salt air seashore environments.
The genuine, one-piece, plate design is a bear to replace, as it requires removing the wheel hub (which in turn often means replacing the wheel bearings.)
Our new, two-plate design eliminates the need to remove the hub and saves you significant time and money.
Check out the video for details.
Parking brake shoes, hardware and springs are also recommended for replacement when replacing the backing plates - see related items for the kit that includes the plates plus parking brake shoes, springs and hardware.
When the Rear Brake Backing Plate starts to rot where the pins for the parking brake shoes are retained, it is important to replace this item to avoid further damage to your braking system. With our NEW Split Shell Design, watch Doug, our Land Rover Master Technician, explain the process involved in replacing the rear brake backing plates for a Range Rover Sport Supercharged 2006.This service is also valid on Land Rover LR3 and LR4, 2005 - 2013 vehicles. Our money-saving kit # PARKBRAKIT02 (includes the left and right brake backing plates and connecting hardware, and parking brake shoes). What makes this Rear Brake Backing Plate Kit special from the original is the new split shell two-piece design we use. With the original design, to access to replace you must remove the wheel hub and disassemble part of the rear suspension, etc., which could involve damaging some components (through removal). You will avoid this with our kit at installation, since we work around those components. In this video, you will also see Doug remove and re-install the parking brake shoes and connect cable.
