Did Advanced A P screwed me up.What did they sold me?

Dear Forum,

3 years ago I was on a buisness trip in Detroit & I bought an extra
set brake pads for my S10 4wd 1997 4.3V6.

I went back to Germany and now 3 years later I have this issue.
The rear one are wrong. smaller

What do I got instead here.

Please see pictures.


Maybe I can sell them if I would know what pads they are

First thing I would do is talk to them. Tell them the deal and see if you can simply trade them in for the right shoes or store credit.

I tried using the numbers off the shoes on the AAP site and got nothing. If you have a receipt, use the p/n off it to enter in their site to get the app.

I just looked on RockAuto.com and they have them at good prices.
Du kannst RockAuto auch in Deutsch anschauen.

No one who sold you anything 3 years ago is going to respond or care.

Listing should have, but may not, have drum diameter and shoe width. I always check the drum diameter and brake shoe width whenever I buy brakes for an older vehicle which may have different sizes. It saves on multiple trips to the store.

Are all four shoes too small ?

The pictures are not good enough to compare, I tried it.
I donīt think your car would be special for Germany, like bigger drums.

Hereīs a place in Germany KTS Hamburg
who could order up the parts for you.
I used them when I had a Camaro in Germany, even visited them.
You could also try a GM/Opel dealer where you live, I also got parts/repair for the Camaro there.

Telefonnummer: 040-5569590
Inhaber und Adresse: KTS American Parts Vertriebsgesellschaft für Kraftfahrzeugteile mbH, Nordring 10 25474 Bönningstedt

I would take the original brake shoes to a GM dealer.

Check the attachment for a Delco number.

I looked it up the GM parts Catalog,

I have a 11x 2 " drum.

I have to use GM part no 18020171
AC-Delco 171-499

which is Wagner PAB 462.

So they gave me the wrong part no.

What a bad day

Well at least youīre on your way....

When you bought those shoes in Detroit did you have the carīs paperwork ?

Odd that no drum brake of your size is listed on RockAuto.
