A wheel cylinder (sometimes known as a brake cylinder) works in conjunction with the drum brake system. It is located above the brake shoes at the top of the wheel and is responsible for applying force to the brake shoes causing the vehicle to slow or stop.
Brakes are paramount to driving safely and unresolved wheel cylinder problems can be incredibly dangerous. If you suspect your braking system is faulty, it’s best to determine what the problem is immediately.
