Brake question - quick answer appreciated

1411 Views 16 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  swh22
I have my rear, driver's side wheel and drum pulled off to check my brakes (failed inspection, no braking from that wheel). The entire brake assembly is covered in grease, which certianly explains the braking problem. But what is causing this, a broken seal to the axle? Anything I can replace or just clean it all up and forget about it?

I also could be a wheel cylinder leaking. I had one go out on my Mustang and when I pulled it, when the brake fluid combined with the brake shoes, it made a grey goo that looked like grease, you might want to check that out.
