Brake Backplate, Drum, Rear, Right, Bug / Beetle / Karmann Ghia 68-
The brake backplate protects your brake shoes, springs and internals from the environment, be that poor weather or debris from the roadway. These are a simple replacement part for the original item, certainly worth replacing them if they show any signs of wear.
So why not make your life easy and purchase a couple of new brakeplates, when you are replacing your shoes rather than struggling to refurbish your old corroded brake backplates. The whole job of building up the brakes will be a pleasure rather than a chore.
These replacement pressed steel brake plates come pre-painted and are specifically handed for each of your rear drums.
