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.
A brake master cylinder? If you are losing brakes or brake fluid.
Don't drive and take it straight to a garage 'cause it will empty your brake cylinder.
yes , 1 chamber is for the front brakes and the other chamber is for the back brakes
. 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.
If you can pump the brake pedal and it gets hard, hold pressure on it and it should slowly go to the floor. That is either the master cylinder or a wheel cylinder. Wheel cylinder will show brake fluid on the inside of the tire.There are a couple of indicators. The brakes will act as if there are no power brakes and look for signs of fluid leaking around it.
A piston on each end of the wheel cylinder pushes outward when the brakes are applied. This pushes the brake shoes against the brake drum and stops the vehicle. The pistons are forced out by the pressure of the brake fluid inside the wheel cylinder when you apply the brakes.
Brake master cylinder repair is where someone or some body fixes the master cylinder on your brakes. It is the main line to your brake apparatus. Also the master cylinder is the container for the fluid and the piston, forming part of a device such as a hydraulic brake or clutch.
The fluid for the clutch comes from the brake fluid. After the brake master cylinder, there is a clutch master cylinder which takes fluid from the brakes. Fill up the Brake master cylinder.
You don't. You add it to the master cylinder and bleed the brakes.
Brakes are adjusted too tight. Brakes are misassembled. Brake hose is restricted, holdings the brake on.
1998 GM Saturn (all models) have rear brake shoes
If you mean the " BRAKE " light in your dash , that means your brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder is LOW . The brake master cylinder is located in the engine compartment on the drivers side
No, Check the fluid level in the master cylinder. If empty look for leak in system, perhaps a broken brake line or leaking wheel cylinder or caliper. If equipped with drum type brakes, perhaps need adjustment.
Is the brake fluid level low in your brake master cylinder in the engine compartment ?
Under the brake master cylinder.
Yes, you do.
If the vehicle has drum rear brakes, yes.
Yes, replace the brake booster and master cylinder.Yes, replace the brake booster and master cylinder.
Not really an answer, but another question... did you bleed the brakes after you changed them? I remember that is a critical step, NOT to be missed when working on the brakes. Hope this helps.
The first thing you should do is remove the master cylinder so you can dump the brake fluid reservoir out. If you have used the brakes, it is a very good idea to get the entire brake system bled and replace all the brake fluid.
you either need a new brake master cylinder or your brakes need to be bled
Defective Master Cylinder or broken brake line. Replace the master cylinder and bleed the brakes.
Not usually. It is possible for the mater cylinder get suck in the apply position, but the brake pedal would not return to the up position after stopping. A more common problem for the brakes to be stuck applied is a locked wheel cylinder or brake caliper, or a jambed parking brake. These issues will be at one or more of the wheels, so check there if your brake pedal is at normal height.
