WHEEL CYLINDER

1997 Honda CRV

Brakes problem
1997 Honda CRV 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles

I just replaced my wheel cylinder, and as I press on the brake one side pops open and brake fluid is sprayed everywhere, is my new cylinder already broken?

Hi Joyridez34,

Check the seal for tear, if none, you can reinstall the piston into the cylinder and it would be ok, but remember to install the drum before trying to do bleeding.
