Brake problems W22
I should think you are all getting fed up with this subject SORRY!
We have a 2005 winnie voyage,W22 chassis about 15 months ago I replaced all the phenolic 66mm pistons in the calipers, new pads, both rear rotors, all hoses, both rear abs sensors, flushed brake fluid. sailed through the MOT x 2, great.
2 weeks ago drove some 160 miles on motorways, no problem last 11 miles a lot of twist and turns, brake burning smell unable to stop along the road, to narrow, arrived on site, LHF and RHR rotors cherry red, cooled off and working
Question one I noticed the gasket on one section of the master cylinder vent was collapsed against the cap, (boiled brake fluid pressure ? ) according to my info, the brakes are split front and back where as the problem would indicate diagonal brake lines ? can anyone confirm which it is please?
I am going to replace all the brake components , I can get hold of reman calipers with 73 mm steel pistons, has anybody done this? As we are a damp area of the world(UK) I am not inclined to go down the phenolic route again.
I know this is going to cost me a packet, with shipping to the UK and all, but we are full timing and I am a retired Truck engineer, so will do all the work myself, (you only have to mention RV and you can see £££s signs in their eyes)
Sorry this is so long.
All the good numbers
Home is where I park it
