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.

Mercury Tracer L4-2.0L - Tie Rod End Replacement (Front Left Inner, Front Right Inner) - Dallas, Texas
Kyle again did outstanding work. For some reason I had the wrong part. He took it back to exchange and the Auto store was out of stock. The nearest store that had one in stock was THIRTEEN miles away. Kyle was kind enough to drive that far, for the replacement. In my book, he is one kind and professional person.

Mercury Tracer L4-2.0L - Spark Plugs - Dallas, Texas
Kyle was very professional, willing to go above and beyond to complete the job. He even found a loose wire that was part of the problem. He also found that some wires had been switched up. He could have just completed the job and left, but he took the extra step. Kyle is a good worker and very respectful.

Mercury Tracer L4-2.0L - Brake Master Cylinder - Dallas, Texas
Adam was very professional, polite, had a great attitude even when it was learned he would need to return the day after to continue with the repair. Through no fault of his own as another part was needed. He is a very hard worker never stopping for breaks, although he had previously worked other jobs before mine. Hope you all understand you have a great mechanic here. Thanks for sending him for my repair, I will make sure to request him again and tell all of my friends. Good Job, your mechanic.
