Question about 1993 Toyota Paseo
The rear drum brake is leaking brake fluid and breached the brake system. Never dealt with drum brakes before.... sooooo I take it that its the caliber.... but havent even the slightest idea how to take it apart. I am not much of a mechanic unfortunately.... but could use some basic advice.....
You don't have calipers in drum brakes. you have wheel cylinders that activate the brakes when pedal is pressed. The brake cylinder is located at the top of the brake backing plate on the rear wheel. the brake line is screwed to it on the outside and two small bolt hold it in place. remove your brake springs, shoes etc., then remove the brake line and bolts. Before removing the brake line and bolts spray them with WD40 or something similar to loosen the rust around the fittings.
