Ive stripped the rear drum down and it was quite oily. Got to go to Partco tomorrow and buy a new cylinder, and buy some more brake fluid from Halfords, along with a set of pads. Checked the other brakes and theyre all fine and cant find any leaks. Can anyone explain to me why all the brakes dont work when its a diaganol braking system and only ones leaking?

cos the brake fluid has leaked out so there will be air in the system etc...

bleeding 4 corners is going to change all the fluid anyway. Make sure you buy a lot!

Why cant you get the fluid and pads from partco?
