Hi i was driving around the other day in my EA and suddenly the brakes stopped functioning properly, it became extremely soft and i couldnt feel any pressure when i apply the brake ofcourse the car wasnt stopping straight away. pull the car over had a look at the brake fluid and almost all of it is gone. At first thought the master cylinder was dead but after topping it up with brake fluid its working fine again. So did a lot of looking to locate the leak and found out its coming outa the front right wheel, its only seeping out so its not leaking alot since i had the car serviced like 2 months ago it wouldve had the brake fluid topped up.
now to the problem what can cause the fluid to leak out of brakes? has anyone heard of or experience similar problems before?
i think from memory the overhaul kits are worth around 20 bucks a side from ford
i did the ones in my EA and its not hard to do, the hardest bit is bleeding them by yourself! the rest is pretty straight forward
i think ive got another kit in the garage somewhere, but i see youre in sydney so may as well pick one up from ford
