Wheel cylinders form an important part of what stops your car when you press on the brakes. The wheel cylinder exerts force onto the brake shoes, pushing them into the drum and creating the friction to stop your car. When you press on the brake pedal, this generates hydraulic pressure, which acts on the pistons and then exerts mechanical pressure on the brake shoes. When vehicles get older, brake wheel cylinders tend to have a habit of starting to leak, but the good news is they're usually pretty cheap and easy to replace. Wheel cylinders are important for your driver safety and should be maintained through regular checks and part of your yearly service. It is advisable to replace your brake wheel cylinder whenever you change your brake shoes or brake drums. If you need advice on what is the correct wheel cylinder for your car, then why not call into your local Halfords store and one of our team will be happy to help you choose.
