Renault master brake equaliser ***Fixed***

Hey guys.
Hope Ye are all well ( and full of info this evening ). Lol

I have a Renault master 2.8 01 lwb van. She failed the test on the back breaks.
Front breaks good and the hand brake was good. The tester told me to look st the break equaliser. I changed the part out for another on I bled the brakes etc etc.
But I just don't understand them. I don't see if it made any difference. I was told I can't test if myself the only way is the rollers

Does anyone have any advice on either testing the brakes or a process of illumination to get the back brakes working properly and effectively again.

Thanks guys.

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

Am assuming you mean the brake compensator, the part that, when you put weight in the van, allows more fluid/pressure to the back brakes..
Is the lever free to move. was the original one seized.
Give this a try,, force the lever away, Hold it out, (or get someone to help..)
If you have someone to help you, get them in the cab, you get under, pull the lever, and ask them to press on the pedal, if no one to help, then you will have to sprag the lever, then press on the pedal.
Is it drum or discs.
If drum and not adjusted, handbrake will work, but foot brake will have low efficiency

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

Cheers for your info yes the lever is free to move. What will I be looking for when the pedal is pressed and I'm holding the lever out.
When the pedal is pressed the level will push out against the spring some.

It's disk brakes also.
The old one wasn't ciesed either
Thanks for your reply.

If you hold the lever out, then press the pedal, this allows more fluid to pass to the callipers,, , you should feel a firmer pressure on your foot pedal....

Ok great I will try it tomorrow. Will this make more pressure long term.

Should I have bleed the brakes with the axle Spring off an the lever out. Or as a posed to the way I done it with just fitting the brake compensator and axle Spring and bleeding then fully assembled.
