Re: ur-Q brake woes.....?


       Let's see if I'm thinking through this straight....

The pedal goes to the floor with the engine off and the brake fluid level is
Ok. Also no visible leaks.

You're aware of the need to pump the pedal 30 times before checking the
central hydraulic level? The level was good or bad at that point? No visible
leaks from that system either, right?

I'd think that the system would revert to basic brake hydraulics in the case
of a central hydraulic system failure. That points toward the master cyl
being at fault. You didn't mention if your brake warning light came on. Did
it prove out ok when you fired her up?

Still thinkin'
