It is called a wheel cylinder and the rubber cups leak when they wear out. You can buy a new wheel cylinder at Murrays or Autozone for @ $10. SInce it is leaking, you will need a set of brake shoes too, since they are runied when wet with fluid. Replace bot wheel cylinders.

If you do the repair, it will be under $100. A shop will charg about $250 to replace shoes, machine drums and replace wheel cylinders. That's assuming the brake line isn't too rusted into the wheel cylinder. Spary with penetrating oil for a week before attempting to remove brake line.

Take a picture of where all springs, etc go.

here's a mercury example

Brake pedal


Did you ensure that the master brake cylinder was topped up properly whilst you bled the back brake shoes?

If you did so and the brakes are free of air in the lines, then you still have to adjust the brake shoes to their operating position. Secure vehicle from movement. Jack back wheels of the ground, support with jack stands. Remove the rubber grommets that covers brake adjustment wheels. Turn star wheel adjuster with special adjustment tool or a wide blade screw driver. Lock the wheels with the adjustments, push in brake pedal until you have pressure, back off adjustments until wheel runs freely. you should have plenty of pedal now. Make sure master is at the right level at all times.

If you don't have pedal now then I would suggest you still have air in the brake lines.. If you pump the brakes until you have pressure and the pedal feels spongy , then you still have air in the line somewhere. Bleed until air is removed.

There are a number of steps for each style of rear brakes. For one thing, if brake fluid leaked onto a disc pad or brake shoe for a drum type brake, the material should be replaced.

Each style of brake has a different Emergency brake unit. The disc Caliper may have 2 braking systems inside 1 wheel.

Really the best advice to give is only do this with someone who has done this before. Or take it to a brake shop. Brakes are a Key area and a mistake can be serious.

Providing you take off the leaking parts, remove the soaked braking pads or shoe, you still have to reassemble and bleed the brakes to restore the function.

I hope my solution is helpful.

I have a ford f150 that i have redone the brakes but all i getting is a brake pedal and then goes to floor


Bleed your brakes, starting with Right rear, left rear, right front and ending with left front. You have air in the lines or a bad master cylinder. Bleeding is the cheaper of two options.

How do i take off the brake drums on a 2003 chevy cavalier


After you remove the tire, the drim should slide off. If it doesn't then try using a rubber mallet and gently tap on the outside edge as you pull on it. Sometimes you also need to tap on the drum in the center part. I have sprayed penetrating lubes like WD-40 or PB Blaster into the seam at the center. You may also have to back off the parking brake cable or even use the adjuster to back off the shoes.

Rear brakes lock up very easy


leaking brake fluid or lining dust causes locking. take drums off and check brake cylinders for leakage at rubber boots. If leaking, replace cylinders and clean shoes with brake cleaner. If no leakage, clean out all dust with brake cleaner. Adjust shoes up tight to drum and reinstall. Let me know if you have questions or need instructions.

The rear drum brakes:
  • Have internal shoes that expand against the brake drum (1126).
  • Are a single-anchor type.
  • Are actuated by one rear wheel cylinder (2262).
  • Have two pistons in the rear wheel cylinder (2261). One exerts force against the upper end of the primary shoe; the other exerts force against the upper end of the secondary shoe.
  • Adjust rear brake shoes and linings (2200) automatically.
  • Need manual brake adjustment if the adjusters are not operating properly or after the rear brake shoes and linings have been replaced.
When the brake pedal is applied, hydraulic fluid pressure forces the pistons in the rear wheel cylinder outward, moving the rear brake shoes and linings against the brake drum.
The rear drum brake system includes the parking brake mechanism. Refer to Section 206-05 .

95 Lumina rear brakes/low pedal.


IT IS POSSIBLE THE WHEEL CYLINDERS are wrong and need too much fluid to push brakes out. or rear shoes are not adjusted correct. this could be from drums too big(unlikely since new) shoes are not fitting to drum correct.You can take shoes off and set them in drum the whole shoe should contact drum sometimes just the ends contact. If this is case sand off ends of lining to make it fit .
If wheel cylinders are bad they would leak. might try a different brand of cylinders.

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
