    brake problem

    Post  HeatherMaude on Sun Nov 07, 2010 3:51 am

    basically, my when I press my brake pedal It doesn't seem to slow the car down until the pedal is basically at the floor.
    I replaced the pads a couple of months ago and there is plently of brake fluid in the reservoir.

    Anyone got any ideas what could be causing this? it's getting rather dangerous to drive now....

    Yes I do have a servo.
    No I haven't bled the brakes thinking about it.
    As far as I know the discs are ok. Never had a problem with them before.

    make sure your front and rear pads/shoes have some meat to them make sure there is no leaks in the pipes if all still not working the seals might of gone in the servo.
