Hi Chaps,

..I'm still losing brake fluid.. my friendly mechanic [non-alfa] has had a thorough look and can find nothing. Braking performance has not been affected, need to add 30-50mls every two weeks or so..

any further ideas?....


regards

raj :rolleyes:

Ok any fluid marks on the rear walls of the tyres if not is your drivers side carpet under the peddle's dry or is your slave cylinder on top off the gearbox leaking another could be the fluid filling up your servo via master cylinder.

My mechanic mentioned the servo filling as he cant find any leaks despite his best efforts...

if this is the case what can i expect to happen as time goes by and is it expensive to fix?


thanks Nordic,

regards

Eventually it will feel like you have no brake assistance like your brakes are made of bricks.
Not sure on prices but i would expect you could get a secound hand servo and master from someone on here (me or chris155)if it is that.
Where in the country are you?

raj get your mechanic to look on top of the gearbox under the battery tray area..
the rubber cover on the clutch slave cylinder maybe holding the fliud inside so just pull it off and see if fluid spills out.

Hi,

I would also suspect the vacuum servo. If the joints of the master brake cylinder pop off fluid is sucked into the vacuum thing.

There is plenty of room in it, enough for app. 1 ltr. of brake fluid. Last stage will be huge blue clouds coming out of the exhaust and an awkward smell under braking.

It'll be your clutch slave cylinder leaking. Its under the battery tray on 16v's If that helps.
