Occasionally, when I gently depress the brake pedal I get nothing! Normal braking is ok but I've got no idea anymore where the bite point is. Had the garage renew and bleed the brake fluid, pads have plenty of meat etc. I'm thinking it's electrical only because of its random failure but I don't...
I hope someone can help! I have had my callipers off to paint. I have bled the brakes using a pressure bleeder at 2 bar pressure and started with front right, front left, rear right then rear left. When the engine is off I have a solid pedal but when started the pedal goes soft and...
This is possibly a daft question.
I've just noticed that when I press the brake pedal I can hear a sound like a bike pump blowing a tyre up. And it continues until the pedal is solid, but the pedal slowly depresses if I keep pressure on.
Is this normal?
Can anyone recommend a one man brake bleeding kit and if there is a sequence to bleeding brakes on a T6 T32?
Looking to remove my brake calipers one by one to coat them hence the questions.
The MFD briefly flashed up a message to say brake fluid was low but disappeared again very quickly. I checked the brake fluid reservoir and it is completely empty. Van is driving fine, the clutch has juddered on reverse for the two years we have owned it. No noticeable difference to the brakes...
The brake fluid in my van is about a quarter of an inch below minimum.
Went to top it up with more fluid but the fluid won't flow in. It's as if the reservoir funnel at the cap is blocked.
Has anyone experienced this issue before?
Morning, a bit of advice please. I have a T6 Kombi Transporter. Just booked in for first MOT and service for which I took out a fixed price service plan, informed it will be major service. Is it usual to need brake fluid change as an extra?
In the not too distant future, I intend to replace my rear disks and pads,Brembo. While I'm at it I will also replace the brake fluid.
Is the sequence for bleeding, rear offside, rear nearside, front offside and front nearside? I'm just going off the position of the abs not the cylinder.
I have some outlandish black paint for my callipers which I plan to apply whilst I have the shocks out.
To make my life easier I’d like to remove the callipers, (I have a brake pipe clamp to reduce air ingress).
How easy is it to bleed the T6? Should I worry about air into the ABS -...
I appear to have a slight leak from my brake fluid reservoir. The fluid appears to be leaking from around the cap so it’s looking like I’m going to need a new one. Any ideas where I can pick one up from?
I've been encouraged to have an air con service carried out when I get my brake fluid changed. My van is just over 3 years old with 24000 miles on the clock. The brake fluid change.....I get that....given the cost of ABS pumps etc, I'd consider it essential and very reasonable at £69. The aircon...
Having a friend change my front disc and pads next week and also brake fluid change as it is recommended by VW. Anyway is the standard Dot 4 correct as it shows it meets certain standards but does not show the VW standard shown on there own brake fluid?
I have a look online and these both come...
Van is going to need the brakes doing in the near future. I've just had a look on the VW website and it shows me prices for vans over 3 years but not under.
Front disc and pads : £365+vat
Rear disc and pads : £335+vat
So my question is has anyone had brakes replace before being 3 years old...
