Q: Tools needed to change rear brake cylinder

asked by on

changing rear brake cylinder
My car has an automatic transmission.

To replace the brake cylinders, you will need a brake pliers and brake spoon. To bleed the brakes you will need a manual brake bleeder tool. The rest is going to be regular metric hand tools. Make sure to do only one side at a time in case you need a reference to install the new parts.
