Carquest Wearever Drum Brake Wheel Cylinder

Part No. WCA37849 Warranty Details  

See if this part fits a specific vehicle.

Check Vehicle Fit

Direct replacement Wheel Cylinders are designed to fit specific vehicle applications and to ensure a proper fit every time. Normal wear may cause piston seals to leak. Corrosion and pitting can also occur inside Wheel Cylinders as moisture builds up in the brake fluid. A leaky Wheel Cylinder can be dangerous to the driver, causing gradual softening of the brake pedal and creating brake pull to one side.

Product Features:
  • All Wheel Cylinders are made with high quality EPDM rubber cups and boots for long lasting performance
  • Wheel Cylinder bores are surface tested to ensure an optimum sealing surface for the pressure cups
  • Due to repair time and cost, it is more desirable to replace instead of repair Wheel Cylinders
  • Recommended replacement is suggested when servicing drum brake

    Broke a bleeder screw and replacing the wheel cylinder was time and cost effective way to overcome the problem.

        The installation went well until making brake hose connections. the machining at the pressure port connection was too rough to allow a good seal without having to over torque the attachment bolt.

          Have had this installed for over a year since my last one snapped when I tried flushing my brake lines. No leaks or issues.

              Comments about Carquest Wearever Drum Brake Wheel Cylinder:

              Ordered this for a replacement in my 97 Saturn wagon. It was super easy to install, the only tough part about the job was remembering where all the springs went in the drum. The old cylinder was on there fairly tight, but after some liquid wrench it freed fairly easy. Watch taking it off, you don't want to mess up the brake line or fittings. I forgot to get new washers for the brake bolt, so I am going out to just get a whole new bolt(complete with washers). Not necessary to replace shoes when replacing cylinder, but since you have to remove the drum and springs, might as well do it.

                these were real easy to install, remember to replace the washers on the brake line so they don't leak (they do not come with the wheel cylinder, so remember to grab a pack)

                    Good wheel cylinder. Should come with new copper washers for the brake lines, but were not included.
