Title: Brake problems
Post by: Dan5 on 19:21, Thu 25 August 2011
Hi,

I've recently fitted some 4 pot brakes to my car after bleeding the system a couple of time the brake pedal goes to the floor. I think my master cylinder may have had it.

Would it be worth fittingbigger bored master cylinder to suit the calliper?

Any help would be much appreciated

try pulling or pushing the rear brake sensor it might of been closed when you first bled the system which means you might still have air in the system

silly question but easily over looked

are the bleed nipples at the top or bottom of the front calipers?

The callipers have 2 nipples each both at the top.

I've bled the system a few times now and the pedal still travels to the floor.

are you locking the compensator lever to the front of the car when bleeding the rear brakes?

how are you bleeding the system manually or with an easy bleed kit?

Yeah I've lock it forward. I've been bleeding them manually. I did have problem bleeding the front driver side calliper.

Do you think it could be something other then my master cylinder?
