Carquest Wearever Drum Brake Wheel Cylinder

Part No. WCA37855 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

At this price it makes sense to replace them when doing a brake job.

Comments about Carquest Wearever Drum Brake Wheel Cylinder:

The wheel cylinders worked really good once installed on my 99 Montana. The original screws needed a E-8 socket for removal and were rusted, had a bit of a tough time removing them! It would be really nice if two screws were w each cylinder. This would make install much easier! Otherwise, brake pedal has no more fade, shoes have no more strange noises when stopping and stop distance decreased. Can't ask for anything more from your brakes.

Very good price, time will tell if it lasts. Have guilt trip for buying Chinese goods when so many are out of work in the USA. Retired & struggling.

        do i have to power bleed my brakes after installing this?

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Yes, when you have replaced the existing one with the Tru-Torque Drum Brake Wheel Cylinder (Part No. W37855), open the master cylinder and fill it with clean, fresh brake fluid. Then open the bleeders on the wheel cylinders, one at a time, and close them when you see a steady stream of fluid coming out. Reinstall the brake shoes and drum. Adjust the brakes and then bleed the wheel cylinders. Have someone hold pressure on the brakes and make sure there are no leaks. For any further assistance please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto store and one of our representatives will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

          A:

          Well this all depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience. I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
