Recently we changed the clutch ratchet and having got that working test drove the car the clutch was perfect BUT the brake pedal was soft and useless. To the best of my knowledge we took a clip of something protruding out of the brake pedal as said in the Haynes manual and replaced it. Logic tells me that I have not reassembled it properly but cannot see what is wrong. It certainly is not the hydraulics / servo.
Any ideas??
Cannot find a blow apart diagram for the brake pedal assembly anywhere.
Thanks

Peter

Sorted..someone? undid the bolts holding the long bar that traverses the engine to the hydraulics. Result was as you pressed the pedal the bar moved forward and the hydraulics were not compressed.

Ten minutes of frantic nut tightening and we were fixed. A case of too many cooks spoiling the broth!!!
