URGENT -- Brake Question
Posted 26 January 2004 - 08:38 AM
A few weeks ago we did a lot of work to the front and rear brakes, everthing was fine until this past Saturday, she noticed a grinding, checked the fluid and it was low (just above the where the float would make contact) she added fluid and they sounded fine.
Yesterday the fluid level was fine. This morning the grinding was back, and again the fluid was low.
WTF? Any hints tips on isolating the leak? My method is to pull the wheels one at a time and poke around for leaks.

Sorry for the lack of info..
It is an XT6, so it has disks on all 4 wheels.

It is an auto, so no hill holder involved.
The dust seals were pretty tore up, are they part of a caliper rebuild kit? What else is in the kit?
Meeky, Set and Ben, thanks for the tips. I'll be checking it out tonight.

The dust sleeve should be part of any rebuild kit. Word of advice though rebuilding 'em is hard as crap from what I understand. Most garages don't even do it anymore.
