Topics I've Started

Just Replaced A Master Brake Cylinder

27 October 2014 - 07:41 PM

well, the garage did, (58 plate fiesta)


just wondering, i replaced the disc's & pads, took the cap off of the reservoir, gently squeezed back the pistons.


not long after that, say 6 months, i started to get a wee squeak from the brakes, lightly touching the brake pedal would stop it, but it gradually got worse, so garage it was.


got told they think it was the MBC, they've replaced it (also cleaned/greased the brakes from & back) and it seems to have done the trick


just wondering if this has happened to anybody, as mechanics at my work (offshore) are saying it would've been highly unlikely the MBC
