How much should it cost to fix a brake fluid leak in the right rear cylinder of a 1997 Saturn SC2 and do you need to do both rear brakes at the same time?

Right rear wheel cylinder (assuming you have a drum brake in the back) is a couple bolts and an oil line going in. You would need to remove the drum brake parts to remove it but a new cylinder would probably run around 20 bucks in an auto part store.

If it is a disc with caliper and it is leaking from the caliper piston itself, your looking at a new caliper which may run around 40 bucks. You may just have a line leak and in the rear it should be pretty easy to remove and replace with a new section.

Bleeding the brakes should be done for both rear brakes at the same time to be certain. You need to open the bleeders to do this. Be careful, use penetrating oil and plenty of time.. maybe a lil heat as well.

Don't drive and take it straight to a garage 'cause it will empty your brake cylinder.

. If you have the 4-port master cylinder, the bottom ports go to the rear brakes & the upper side ports go to the front brakes.

Brake cylinder repair is that wheel cylinder that holds the oil to keep your brakes running smooth on your back brakes. If you don't repair those you will mess up your rotors and your rims.
