Question about 1998 Dodge Neon
Hi my name is Allen!
To change the rear wheel cylinders on your neon, first take the wheel and the drum off, next using the proper size line-wrench take the brakeline off the wheel cylinder, next take the spring off the upper part of the brake shoe and pry back on the upper part of the shoe's, this will give enough space to remove the wheel cylinder without taking all the other parts off the shoes, next, take the 2 bolts off the wheel cylinder that hold it into place and install the new one in reverse procedure.
Note: Do one side at a time, becuse this will make easier to bleed the system. once you have one side done with the drum back on and every thing tight, then you will need someone to help bleed the brakes.
Note: make sure you never run out of fluid in the master cylinder are you will have to start the bleed procedure all over again.
Note: Have the person helping you, pump the brakes 5 times then hold the brake pedal to the floor and make sure they hold it there until you have loosened the bleed nut and tightened it back up again, once you have done that, have them pump the brakes and hold it down again. Do this procedure several times making sure not to run out of fluid in the master cylinder. Once all the air is out of the system replace the other whell cylinder on the other side and bleed it the same way.
Note: make sure before bleeding the system that all components are completely installed, because if you try to bleed the system with the drums off and before placing the shoes back where they belong and installing the spring and drum the wheel cylinder parts will be pushed out of it.
