Re: clio authentique, problem fitting brake shoes


i did loose some brake fluid when changing the wheel cylinder. i can pump up the brake. when driving if i hit the pedal hard it does have a hard braking effect. when i press slowly its as though the brakes are not working at all.
when changing the wheel cylinder, i removed the brake fluid cap and placed a plastic bag over it to try and stop the flow of brake fluid. apparently this can cause air to get in and damage the master cylinder. i didnt see any fluid leaking from either rear wheel. there is a small cap on the new wheel cylinder breather valve. should this be removed?
