We have a Mk 3 'M reg' Fiesta 1.6 dohc.
We have been servicing the brakes on it all was going Ok until we noticed that the master cylinder was leaking fluid from the back.
We managed to get some new seals and they were changed. We then had problems getting the cylinder to pump the fluid.
I said I think that we may have put the seals in wrong(We should have noted the direction of the seals on dismantling. Ooops)
I said don't worry we will check the haynes manual.
We are now confused as the manual seems to contradict itself on the placement of the seals on the inner or secondary(As they like to call it) piston.
We originally put all the seals in the same way.
The manual can be viewed at [url="http://members.multimania.nl/sjakie198/Haynes_Fiesta_MK3_Manual/1595-09.pdf"]Fiesta Mk 3 Manual Brake PDF[/url]
The picture they have is not the same as the text that is quoted below.
Note that the seals on the
secondary piston have raised lips which face
away from each other, towards the extremities
of the piston (see illustration).
So Mr Haynes which is it? Facing away from each other or the same way, as in the diagram?????
Hope you can understand our problem and that somebody knows the answer.
