Clio 2 question from worried parent
Son's Clio - brakes suddenly fail. OSR brake drum is p****ng out fluid. Lining detached from one shoe.
Fluid coming out of dust boot one end of slave cyl.
I have replaced drum (teenagers cracked the hubcap flange,
grrrr!), bearing, slave cylinder and shoes.
From the safety angle how could this have happened? I though cars since the eighties had dual circuits. The pedal was going to the floor with little or no braking effort. Could have been very dangerous.
