Brake fluid leaking from inside of back wheel.....

I'm having to fill up my master cylinder often after leaving it in the carport for a couple of days without driving. Then I saw WHY!

Fluid is coming from the inside of my back right wheel. I guess it's a wheel cylinder????

Is that right???

What next???

Thanks!

(0|||0) Just keep on fixin' 'em!!

That's right. However, they are not too hard to rebuild. Local auto parts stores have kits with all the springs and junk you need. You have to purchase the cylinder separately. Be sure to bleed the line good when finished. Basic tools required, nothing special. Before you start, tho, make sure it's not just a leaky brake line or connection!

Keep on Jeepin'

Re: Brake fluid leaking from inside of back wheel.....

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] Ha!...ELUSIVE...try to imagine yourself standing at a heavy plate table with about ten other guys dismantling brake calipers and brake cylinders all day. Beating them apart, popping out the pistons with air, and old greasy brake fluid running off the table into the catch-grooves. One of my clients is a Dana Corporation brake components rebuilder. I'll have to say, however, that by the time the parts make it to the re-assembly area you cannot tell them from brand new. Their sifting process for rejects is pretty intense.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]I do my part to help them maintain their ISO 9002 company status by making sure that the all of the compressors compress, the wheelabrators wheelabrate, the hot tanks tank, and .......well, you get the idea[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Tip:
The rebuild kits from NAPA are MUCH better quality than from AutoZone or Checker.
