Renault Clio 1 - No Brakes!*FIXED*
Had a strange experience today when returning home from a short trip of around 20miles.
Approaching a roundabout I touched m,y brakes to start slowing down and my pedal went down to the floor. Pumped it a couple of times and was only doing around 15mph as I glided gracefully into an empty roundabout.
Exiting and with less than mile to reach home, I drove very slowly - annoying all the holiday makers and used the handbrake to slow and stop.
I kept tentatively dabbing at the foot brake but still very pumpable. About three hundred yards from home I had to brake for an idiot 'L' on moped and automatically hit the footbrake; lo and behold the darned thing is working normally.
I checked under the bonnet only to see what my brake fluid res was like and it's OK. Nipping down to the garage on Tuesday to see the lads and get it sorted.
Anyone else been subjected to the same phenomenon?
