    Default Bolero Brakes

    Hi There
    I would like to find out if anyone has had a problem with brakes fading away

    My bolero brakes work fine but if you drive a while and press brakes there is nothing then you pump the brakes and it works again ,
    Please let me know i would like to know what i need to repair it
    Master Cylinder Repair kit was my first choice @ the Dealer

    I had the same on my Bolero, also replaced the Master Cylinder and still the same, sold the Bolero and my Thar has also done the same, maybe once or twice..

    No idea what the problem is

    Have you tried replacing the brake fluid?

    Yes, I did replace the brake fuild on the Bolero when I changed the master, in fact I fitted a all new booster and master combo at the time

    But not on the Thar yet

    Does your brake pedal go soft, or is it still hard, but just no brakes?

    A soft pedal could be loads of things, air bubbles due to heat or poor brake fluid, water in the lines, poor flexable brake lines.....

    A hard pedal with no stopping power could be brake pads. Not sure what type the chinaman use, but perhaps look at uprated pads?

    Mine went soft, dropped to the floor and then when pressed again working 100%

    Most times I could recall was in 4x4 applications
