What is the Brake Wheel Cylinder all about?

Brake wheel cylinders push the brake shoes against the brake drum, causing friction that slows down the car. They are located in the rear brake system, inside the brake drums. Over time, wheel cylinder seals may wear out and start leaking brake fluid, reducing the effectiveness of the brakes.

Keep in mind:

Brake wheel cylinders are replaced in pairs. Both rear tires will get new cylinders.

How it's done:

  • Inspect rear wheel cylinders for leakage.
  • Inspect rear brake shoes and hardware.
  • Replace wheel cylinders if found faulty.
  • Adjust rear brakes.
  • Lube backing plate.
  • Make sure axle seals are not leaking into brake drums.
  • Bleed entire brake system.
  • Perform a brake inspection, including test drive.

Our recommendation:

It is a good idea to get the brake wheel cylinders inspected once every year. You should get your brake system inspected immediately if the brake warning light is on.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Brake Wheel Cylinder?

  • Brake pedal goes all the way to the floor.
  • Noise from rear brakes.
  • Fluid leaking underneath the car near rear tires.

How important is this service?

When you depress your brake pedal, the brake wheel cylinder applies pressure to the brake shoe. This pressure pushes the brake shoe into contact with the brake drum, which creates the friction that allows your vehicle to slow down and stop. When the brake wheel cylinder stops working, it is no longer able to exert enough force onto the brake shoe, and your vehicle will not be able to brake as effectively as it should.

Bill was nothing short of awesome! He arrived early, he talked me through what he was going to do, proactively notified me of other components that could be affected and finished the job in 1/2 the quoted time. Since he'd been under the hood, he made sure to let me know the state of the engine (he checked for leaks, oil, filters, etc.) , and told me, luckily, that it was in good shape. I would literally change my schedule to make him available, even for something as simple as an oil change.

Awesome services. Jonathan knows his stuff. I told him problem and what I thought it might be. He conducted his test to verified that I what I believe is the cause. Replaced the part and ran his checks to make sure everything was running smoothly. Had another mechanic before him through the site and wasnt pleased at all. Jonathan definitely received a 10 stars.. very very pleased with jonathan knowledge and professionalism
