If there is fluid at the outside of the wheel cylinder and nothing coming out of the bleeder and the pistons on the wheel cylinder are “in” then there is only two options.
1) take the wheel cylinders apart and clean them up really well and HOPE you get them together and they work ok. Old cylinders get grooved and if the piston doesn't reseat to the old positions then they MAY/WILL leak.
2) Replace the wheel cylinder, do both sides.
If #1 doesn’t work then wheel cylinders are cheap and #2 is the best option.
Lately, I've replaced my front right brake caliper cause I had a seized caliper piston.
I've checked the wheel cylinder for leaks under the boot and there were none.
I've only removed the left drum cover for inspection the right one will be done this week end for inspection too.
For best results, I'll buy new wheel cylinders (both side) and do a drum brake job.
Also, bleed the whole system start with the farthest away wheel cylinder and work to the master; RR, RL, FR, FL[/QUOTE]
I saw that I had a problem on my drum brakes last week end while I was doing a complete brake bleeding. I bought motive brake bleeder for an easy one man job.
What do your rear shoes look like ?
The thing is I forgot to measure my drum cover to know if I have a 9" or 10" drum brake but the way I remember my brake shoes is they're in good shape I think. Those are riveted brake shoes.
Anyway for better inspection, how do you inspect the brake shoes ?
How about the front Pads ?
I've changed my front pads last year and when I change my brake caliper lately, I checked them again and they're in good shape. For caution, I've bought EBC brake pads but I don't remember if that's the green or yellow stuff.
BTW, thanks for your help !
