Dont try to repair the wheel cylinders. It is much easier and not expensive to replace them . new ones are available from an aftermarket auto store. Do one side at a time so you can refer to the unstripped down side if you cant work out how it goes back together. Place a clamp or locking pliars on the rear flexible brake pipe to stop loosing all the brake fluid when the cylinders are removed. Remove the shoes and cylinder , Fit new cylinder, replace the shoes if they are soaked in brake fluid or badly worn. When you have done both sides bleed and sdjust them. make sure you top up the master cylinder with brake fluid. If this is helpful Please Vote Jeff

I have a 95 honda civic 2dr coup. when ever the car is in motion i hear squeeking/ grinding from the rear breaks. I don't know what could keep causing this. I just replaced the rear break pads, drum...


you may need a hub bearing. do you know which side? they're relatively easy to check; just jack up rear of car, release e-brake and rotate each wheel, listening for any noise or rumble; another way is to place your hand on the coil spring while spinning the wheel, as any rumbling that can't be heard will be felt in the spring. hope this helps.

Brake lock-up


I suspect that you have front disc and rear drum brakes.You did not say which of your brakes are locking up. I suggest that if your front brakes are locking {skid} that means your rear brakes are not engaging. If your rear brakes are locking {skid} then I suggest you have problems with park brake or brake fluid leaking onto the rear shoes.
More info would help me help you. I will check back soon.

Brakes lock up autmatically


Try bleeding the entire brake system and I would recommend using fresh brake fluid. Do the front brakes or rear brakes lock up? Perhaps the front calipers need to be worn in a bit since the car has been sitting for a while or the rear wheel cylinders need to be worn in as well. Parts tend to dry up when not used on a regular basis.
