Had this squealing sound from my rear drum brakes after I've changed brake shoes. Went back a few times but issue was never resolved. It only occurs during soft braking when vehicle is coming to stop slowly.

Went to CH Auto and they managed to rectify it. Clean, wet sand and grease.
So whats the cause? Why previous WS unable to rectify for you?

Yup. Sheng Auto can do. I'll be purchasing the headlamp lens cover and bring to them to reseal. Save the trouble of polishing.
Roughly how much it cost to reseal as my left headlight have some condensation too

It won't be expensive, they are one of the most reasonable priced accessory shop in Johor.

Just that for headlamps it will take 2-4 hours

Likely backplate's contact points needed some copper grease/anti-seize.

Not sure if the drums were cleaned out and greased when i replaced the brake shoes cuz i went to have breakfast nearby.

Went back a few times, was told adjustments were done but squealing sound persists. Then i was told to replace brake drum if problem is still there.. the drum is still ok leh from what I observed.

Eventually I went to seek 2nd opinion from another wkshop, going for the most economical repair first before considering parts change.

Say honestly... i haven't got a quote yet but only told them that I will be doing my headlamp

Trust them with the pricing. I done most of my parts (HU, reverse cam, speakers, lights, spoiler, window visors) with them incl aircon. More to come...

I have a bad experience over at this shop. And is my first and last. Changed aircon filter and they installed the new filter incorrectly. Discovered it when i send my ride for a air con system cleaning at another shop away from KSL area.
Since then, i avoid those ws over at ksl.

Prices over that whole stretch of ws near ksl is expensive. Mostly target for SG cars.

We talked about this shop quite alot of times here.

upzzzzzzz

Think I talked about this Ah Wee before here.(believe it is the same Ah Wee we are talking about)

Just spotted this post and like to share my 'bad experience' about this Ah WEE (opp KSL).

I bought 3rd party alarm and plan to bring it in JB to get it done (as labour cost is cheaper there thou).

Was there rather early then as wasn't caught in any jam in.
Ah Wee shop open pretty early at 9+am which I think most shop start around/after 10am.

Asked him about the cost of installation as I wanted to do a boot-release with it too(it a given yet optional function).

He quoted me installing of alarm at rm180 and if I need to do the boot function additional rm80.
Total of rm260, which I feel it not cheap at all (almost the price to install in sg thou).
So I politely told him I will think about it and was to leave.
He then, said if I do now he charge rm60 for boot release cost which I still declined and said will think about it.

Went for breakfast and drive around.
asked a 2 other workshops, both quote me rm150.

I do not know how 'good' the workmanship of this AH WEE can be but for sure am not paying for the price quoted(close to SG rate wor)

So be warned when going there to get things done.
If got time to spare, try to compare a few workshops.

Just my 2cents worth for what happened just recently(less than 1 month).

Any shop near KSL is a chop carrot shop. If you do notice, nearly every car related shop also named themselves as Ah Wee.
