well the pedel goes half way then starts braking,but it's not going to the floor yet!
last time this happened it did this for a week then went to the floor the garage bled the brakes that seemed to work until now.

Renault 5 GT Turbo / brakes need help
« on: 22:36, Tue 10 May 2011 »
ok so it's like this....

car failed mot on rear brakes, so had new calipers and pads, and it passed, 24 hours later brakes, so take to a different garage and they say brakes couldn't have been bled as the bleed valves on front calipers had snapped off (long story) so they replace front calipers and pads,
bleed brakes and they were fine for a week ....then no brakes , i take it back to a very puzzled mechanic and they bleed them again and two weeks later they feel dodgy again so i go back and the guy takes it for a test drive and says that its braking ok some of the time and then its not ???
so his conclusion is that its taking in air  and not leaking fluid ????
when they did the front they said the master cylinder might be buggered but when it canme to it they said that it was fine !!

he has checked all the hoses and pipe work and cant find a problem with that ........

and so it now down to you proffesionals out there .............WHATS WRONG ????

we went to a classic car show at the weekend and was gutted to only see one 5 gt, and to rub it in a few xr2i and 205 gti's. i guess the question is where can we go to see lot's of 5's?

thats what our's was ....too low and off to the right, it wasnt connected to the rubber grommit in front of the rear wheel and the metal band on the silencer wasnt positioned properly, pretty simple to fix really !

two garages told us it needed a new exhaust !!!! took chris an hour !

so in essance all the pic's we all have taken, with the owner's name, all in one place !

so just an idea, what do you think ? is it just me that can look at rusty bit's , new bits , and finished stuff .........for ages ???????

bumper got dinked by some inadequate c#ck so had to sort it, and the exhaust has never fitted correctly (and is still too long) but got it in line at least !

right not sure how to put this so here goes, took it to a different garage explained what has happened, they drove it and yes the system need's bleeding.
they tested the brake's only one was working.
so they tried to bleed the system but no luck because the thing on the front calliper was broken and has been for a while, thus you cannot bleed the system.
in that case how did it pass the mot we ask the guy just shake's his head and say's it wouldnt!
last time we use our local family run garage.
and no swear word's well done me.

as far as i can see no leaks, fluid level is just over max so i'm lost..
going to take it back tomorrow and get them to bleed the system again, if they did do it the first time.

Renault 5 GT Turbo / passed mot,no brakes?
« on: 12:57, Sun 06 March 2011 »
where to start....
the brake's work well, then wednesday it goes in for mot and fails on rear brakes.
so the garage change the callipers and it passes on friday, we pick it up friday night, rach say's it's not braking as it should?????
i've just taken it out and there are no brake's!!!
i pump the pedel and can feel the pressure build up and then it's gone pedel hit's the floor.
how could it pass it's mot like this?
should they have bleed the system?
when pumping the pedel i can hear a puff of air?
any ideas please..
just seem's too much of a coincidence.
