Re: faulty brakes

If you've blead the system and you're sure there's no trapped air it does sound like the master cylinder could be letting fluid by.

When bleeding if you were pushing the pedal right down to the floor this can often damage the seals in the master cylinder as the seals don't normally travel to that position under normal use so there can be corrosion on that part of the master cylinder hence damaged seals.


Please take the time to enter your vehicle details in the "What's current in your garage?" box.

To do this:
Hover over the "TOOLS" tab at the top of the page
> then in the dropdown click on "User Dashboard"
> click on "Edit Your Details" at the top Left hand side.
> scroll down to the "What's current in your garage?" box and enter your vehicle details.
> Once the details are entered scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"

> Done.
