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.

Brake fluid leak on rear drum


If you have no evidence of leaking outside the drum, most likely your brake piston is leaking or the drive shaft seal is leaking. Pull off the drum and look for the piston which spreads the two brake pads normally situated at the top. Inspect for leaks. If the fluid is thin, it is most likely brake fluid. If it is heavier like oil and really stinks, it is gear oil from a leaking seal.

Brake light comes on, add brake fluid. what is the cause?


One of the reasons is because you have a leak somewhere. Try following your brake lines starting from your brake power booster and work your way back making sure all of your connections are dry and tight. Another place to look is in on your caliber piston or if you have rear drum brakes, take off your drum and look at your brake boosters. Both have rubber seals and can leak. If all is good then look into your power brake booster. Hope this helps!

Brakes have a mushy to floor response


usually an indicator of either a loss of pressure due to low fluid and/or air in the system (brake fluid leak) or extremely worn rear brakes (if drum brakes in rear). possible causes include master cylinder (internal fluid pressure leak), external fluid leaks (calipers, lines, wheel cylinders), rear drum brakes extremely worn down or severely out of adjustment. normally worn disc brakes may reduce pedal height SOME, but seldom "to floor". but the "mushy" quote combined with the "floor" quote suggests a hydrolic fluid pressure problem.

Toyota 2001 Sienna brake problem when i press the brake pedal the brakes aren't as strong as the used to be. Even with new brake pads. I have to pump the brake pedal to make them have more power. What...


Check your brake fluid level. if ok, have the system bled as there may be air in the brake system. If your fluid is low, have the brake system checked for leaks. Hopefully this helps!!

Hello. i have a 1991 audi 100. brake padel has become mushy but there are no signs of brake fluid leak on the master cylinder or the lines. the brake pads are new. thanks


Just because there isn't an external leak in the brake system doesn't mean there isn't an internal leak in the master cylinder. A mushy pedal is usually an internal leak in the master cylinder or leaking wheel cylinders in the rear brake drums. Check the rear brake wheel cylinders for fluid leaks, if there are none or you do not have rear drum brakes, your best bet is the master cylinder :)

Sounds like you have a leak in the brake system. The fluid you are seeing is brake fluid.

You need to get this fixed asap.

REAR BRAKES


i think your aware of how to change the brakes if im right and your problem is the rusted drum doesnt want to come off the only way to get the old drum off is to remove adjuster plug from behind drum dustshield and adjust the shoes so that there not even close to the braking area of the drum then try and wiggle the drum off of the assembly if it is not coming off then you need to use the old nylon hammer on the drum and i mean you must hit the drum from side to side trying by hand to wiggle the drum off its a tight fit and you need to strike the drum on the face not on the fins not wanting to damage with persistance and care and patience you will eventually be able to remove the drum to service brakes take care and good luck with it
