Brake fluid started disappearing from thereservior of my R17.
There was also an audible clunk coming from under the car so (rather than actually getting under it and having a red hot gander) I diagnosed this as being an issue with the caliper. Not knowing the history of the car I ordered some seals, pads and hoses, moved houses and put the car in a corner of the shed and onto the "to do" list.
The other day I got under the car and put the d-rubber back around the sway bar and back inside the bracket. Clunk cured, and there was no sign of leaks from any of the wheels or the pressure limiter. This means the only place it can go is into the booster on the south end of the master cylinder.
(Replaced the seals and hoses 'cos I was there, pads were good. In fact it looked like it'd been done not all that long ago.)
Sooo... What happens when brake fluid gets into the booster? Does this kill it? I still have power assistance when I brake. How easy is it to find an R17 master cylinder? Booster?
Do people still do re-sleeving? And kits, what's the story there?
Any info greatly appreciated.
