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.

Ford Escape V6-3.0L - Brake Wheel Cylinder Replacement (Passenger Side) - Scottsdale, Arizona
He is an amazing guy and a top ranking mechanic! While fixing the MANY issues my car was facing he always took the time to explain everything - what the issue is, why it was happening, how he could fix it, and so much more. I never felt like I was being kept in the dark or being charged more than a fair and decent price. When my car first started having brake issues I paid the Ford dealership to figure out what was wrong and they gave me a sheet of paper that said the brake pads were worn down. While Scott was fixing my car, he actually showed me the issue and then found another serious issue that the Ford dealership missed! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I have a 2012 Jeep [Compass](/topics-compass/) that has a red lightning bolt light and check engine light that is intermittent. I replaced the throttle body and the accelerator pedal sensor. I did the recalibration with the pedal and all lights stayed off for about 30 min. Then they came back. I went back through made sure all.of the connections and the hoses were tight and good. Started it up and same thing. I had a friend with a shop scanner come and check and he saw circuit A and B looked good they were running the same however while it sat idle the red lightning bolt came up. I don't know what to do next.
