Re: brakes failing on first use

Hissing sound could be leaking pipe and an easy fix but you'll need to check it over
A length of pipe as a stethoscope can be a useful diagnostic tool
On quotes diagnostics, Renault will charge and likely quote a fortune, national franchises similar, little garages or brake specialists probably best. Phone around or visit a few
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
