re: Renault master brake equaliser ***Fixed***

I can only go on the way I do it, normally with compensator lever forced open.
It allows the fluid to come out easier,
Does your pedal feel firm now..
If you go on the understanding,, 1/4 " drop on each wheel, 4 wheels = 1" max drop on pedal, when ignition off, and brake pumped 3 times, to extinguish vacuum,
Any more than this, then air/adjustment issue..

One of the most wonderful things in life is to wake up and enjoy a cuddle with somebody; unless you are in prison.

The pedal feels good I don't think there is air in it. But what I might do is as you said open lever fully and pump the pedal to let more fluid in there. Other than that I feel it should be working correct.

Should the back wheels turn at all with a lever bar when the pedal is applied mine are turning some when I have the van up on axle stands.

Thanks so much for your time and advice it's great appriated. ?

No,,,,,wheel should not turn, shoes/drum then yes, especially if new shoes, that have not bedded in, but not disc/pads
Was it rear brake efficiency it failed on.
Would you have a read out of the brake figures...


Did you have the rear wheels off, did you, by any chance, inspect your brake pads, where the brake pads the same thickness in each calliper.
That is on off side rear wheel, were both brake pads the same thickness...The same for nearside rear.
Reason I am asking,,
Your hand brake is working, hence the calliper piston is not seized.
But ,,, that does not mean the slides are as free as they should be.
Or,, your hand brake cable, is this adjusted properly ,, if the handbrake lever attached to the calliper, if this is not coming back to its release stop point, then your rear foot brake will not be efficient,,, As the worm gear inside the piston, cannot adjust correctly

Had that on my Tragic, which more than likely, is similar.
Only 6 years old, had to fit new handbrake cables, due to sticking. Only 10 / side.

Well guys.
Just an up date I a held out the lever on the load compensator. Bleed them again. I kinda found when I pressed the pedal the brakes would grad but not lock up. I pressed the spring on the bar to the axle and it locked them up solid. It nearly seemed like the spring needed to give the padel feedback to lock up. The harder I pushed the harder it pushed back.
Anyway I lengthened the bar that small bit to take out some slack.
And she PASSED the test.
Delighted is an understatement.
Thanks so much guys that commented hopefully I can return the favour and help somebody else out that needs it.
Thanks again.
