Think about the next guy working on your brakes....

Please don't do this.  It makes a simple brake shoe replacement a little trickier....



Thanks!

I guess the shop was able to replace the lining rather shoes? ;)

I'm assuming they did this when the shoes were last replaced some time ago.   I guess the old C Clips were starting to not look so great after many changes.   The lining does not have much left and are cracked right through so I will be replacing them along with the shoe.
