1999 Mercury Villager 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 185000 miles
99 villager sport. Left rear drum brake dragging caused shoes to pretty much be cooked off. Wheel cylinder failed, replaced. Replaced both L and R shoes and bled system fully. LR wheel still dragging and heating up/smoking. Now park brake light on w/o being engaged.
I found that I had put the LRear shoes on wrong. Straightened that out and bled line, but no fluid would come out. I disconnected metal brake line from wheel to connection to flex hose on axle. No fluid there either. I assume the brake line is clogged or failed somewhere between flex hose and master cylinder. Any suggestions would be great
have the same problem?
