MOT failure again, see gtv restoration on East Anglia forum.
Car failed MOT again.....
Brake failures. RBT Park Brake Efficiency 13%
Nearside rear brake recording little or no effort.
Offside rear brake recording little or no effort.
Parking brake efficiency below requirements.
this was after I replaced rear discs and pads and flushed out newish brake fluid and adjusted the nut under the handbrake leaver grrrrrr.
So I popped over to a independant alfa specialist in Bury St Edmunds and they suggested that I double check the fitting of the pads and to loosen the nut under the handbrake leaver to, two threads before the end and to drive a couple of miles so that the pads can adjust and then to tighten up the nut. Which I have done today.
Has anyone got any other ideas?
Drive it like you stole it...
