Rear drums not working, front brakes work fine.

Asked by Nov 01, 2014 at 03:29 PM about the 1991 Chevrolet Caprice Base Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I apply pressure to the brake pedal, I have no rear brakes. The fronts seem to be
working fine. I just replaced shoes, & found that the springs & self adjusters were in
backwards on the right rear. Everything is in correctly now, but still don't have rear brakes.
Any ideas?

1 Answer


Rear brake hoses and Proportioning valve would be the first things I would check if there is absolutely no fluid getting to the rear brakes, if there is fluid then there is a problem with the wheel cylinders.
