Has it got the little in-line pressure reduction valves in the brake pipes, either on the master cylinder end or the rear brake hose end??

Had a few of these fail on various Fords & Vauxhalls, we always replace both at the same time!!

Some don't know how?:D

Here is a technical question guys.

We have just tested a Ford Fiesta 52 reg, the rear service brakes rate of change had 100Kgf indifference in their operating range from start.

One of our technicians has cleaned and adjusted the brakes, the result, no different.

Then he changed the brakes shoes, the old ones to me seemed ok, the result, no difference, then, he changed the wheel cylinders, the result no difference.

Then he reprimed all the brakes and we tried again, no different?

The brake drums are mint, the car has covered 48000 miles from new.

Any suggestions or help much appreciated guys:D

However, you will note that you are now a 'Trade Member' if you look under your name on the left.

As well as this section there is is another "Invisible" forum too.

 

This forum is for technical questions between members who are in the Motor Trade only.

Lots of our members are at Main Dealers, they may be able to help other members with answers, and our members at independents and Specialists can do the same.

To view the restricted area users must be registered as" Trade Members".


PM me if you want to join
