the problem came on gradually . the brakes work. when pumped the pedal raises. there is no loss of brakefluid
not after any repair
Ok, this is usually caused by some air trapped in the system but it's unusual to air get trapped over time, it's usually the result of repair work to the brakes. As it is the simplest thing to check I would recommend bleeding the brakes with fresh fluid first, Otherwise a caliper is the likely suspect, check all of the brake pads are fittet correctly and shims are not missing, this can cause the piston to retract slightly when the pedal is released
o k ill have the brakes bled and we will check that all the shims are in place
is there anywhere i can get a diagram of calipers and cylinders for this Honda Civic 2008
