If the decision on restoration of old cylinders is made, make sure available repair sets to them. You do not make repair of only one of wheel cylinders at all - always restore them in a set.



  1. Car back also establish to Poddomkratta it on props. Block wedges forward wheels in order to avoid kickback.
  2. Remove shoe assembly of the brake mechanism (Section Replacement of Boots of Drum Brake Mechanisms).

Capital repairs


  1. Remove the gate of pumping, a cuff of pistons, pistons, boots and assembly of an expansion spring from the wheel cylinder

Components of the wheel cylinder.

  1. Wash out the cylinder in brake fluid or patent means for cleaning of components of brake systems.

Do not use for this purpose gasoline or solvents on an oil basis at all!
