Velociti Brake Pedal Feel ISSUE

Post by DoogyStyle » Fri Feb 16, 2018 8:31 am

Hi guys

Ive got a concern.For the last couple of days i"ve been getting this funny response when applying brakes.Brakes would take but then paddle would would drop /dip.No leaks air or fluid spotted and fluid level is still within limits.Any pointers before i start stripping stuff.

Thanx

Master cylinder leaking, slave leaking, air in the system.
If the master leaks the fluid goes into the brake booster.,so fluid drops but nothing is visible.
