In Topic: Just Replaced A Master Brake Cylinder

A squeak on the brakes that goes with slight pressure applied to the pedal is more than likely nothing more than the pads. Take them out, apply copper grease to the backs and pop back in. At the very worse, maybe a new set of pads.....?



As said above, sounds like they took you for a ride changing the master cylinder. Also a lot of brake systems have anti squeal shims behind the pads which can lose effectiveness over time.


i had both sets of front pads out when they started squeaking, greased up and replaced, still the same squeak


i'll check to see if it has been replaced

I would expect it to get cold even sitting still, that tell sme that the clutch is not engaging, or the compressor is not engaging properly?


It could be if ithasnt been used properly in a while that it was stuck, in which case the drive may have shook it loose, but I would say keep an eye on it!

i'll keep an eye on it and see how it goes


410 grams I would think.

Is the radiator cooling fan running when your idle?

i'll need to check, i've also an aircon bomb to do, so i'll check when thats working

ok, an update,


got it done at a local garage, £45, vacuumed it out and recharged it, think he said it took 410ml???


anyway, he did mention that when sitting still, car running and the aircon on, the car never really went much colder, out on the road, it does get a lot colder.


just wondering if this is normal???
