Re: hard brake pedal

Ok done a search and this is the nearest I can find to my been fine since I bought it back in Jan but today while I was out all off a sudden I found the car had a hard brake pedal..then a normal pedal..then a hard pedal again..cant check the pads and calipers and rear brakes due to the weather ..but master cylinder is full to max mark with fluid..turn engine off and pump up the brake pedal turn on engine and the vacuum releases and thats how its supposed to be well at least that what I have always read is right..cant find any fluid leaks in the cabin at the back of the brake cylinder and vacuum hose on the servo seems sound ..servo does hiss when brakes are over to you guys MOT looming at the end of the month so what do you think..
Currently in Phil48's garage:
