rear brake drums

Post by houseofmowlem » Thu May 04, 2017 1:45 pm

Hi there,

My wife has just bought a second hand 2015 Juke Techna dci and I noticed it has drum brakes on the back. Why is this ? as all the other Jukes I see have disc on the back ?

Thanks Mark

Hi Mark, Have another look please, it should have a disc behind the drum which is for the handbrake. Welcome to the forum.
Its only a Juke if it's RED.

Hi Mark
I think you will find that the later (2015 onwards) 1.2 dig-T and 1.5 dci are being produced with rear drum brakes. I believe the 1.6 dig-T has discs all round as does the Nismo.
Best regards

Thanks for the replies and welcome. I had a look and the are definitely drum brakes. Just seems odd that they are fitting them on later models as it seems a step backwards.

It is a step backwards and a damn cheap one.

It's about time they put disc brakes back on the juke because the drums are absolutely rubbish for stopping

Hi.
I did this weekend have a look at my rear brakes ( 2015 reg ) and as Bernie said it looks like drums, but if you look further to the back you can see the disc's.

Hi Mike,I have looked every where and I cant find anything that says that Nissan have changed their rear discs to brake drums.
