Intermittent Brake loss??

Post by 8bit-ash on Thu Feb 02, 2012 6:02 pm

My brake pedal goes down to the floor intermittently. No loss of fluid and no hoses appear to be damaged. Anyone have any ideas?

I did think for a minute it was worse in reverse but I think it might be a coincidence.

I'm going to get some bits off a breaker next week so might grab the master cylinder and vacuum unit just incase.

I agree master cylinder is the most likely suspect I had the same problem on my Yam SRX6 and it caused along with a prat doing a U turn a broken leg.
