Mr. Schweikle,

You wouldn't happen to have a photo of yours would you? Sorry I have a picture in my mind but it's probably backwards from what I actually need, plus the price tag seems like it would make momma happy haha.

I'm pretty sure my fluid is contaminated, the rubber seal for the cap of the MC was all deform and wrinkled. That was the first thing I checked before I took it to the shop... thought maybe it was low fluid. When I looked in the service manual it said if ithe was wrong fluid then the rubber would be swollen or deformed. Thats why I didn't question the shops call... could that be anything else?

Thanks yall are awesome!

Matt

Working with that if one rubber component is effected in the system then all rubber components are subject to suspect as well which is why any licensed shop would recommend replacement (future legal liability) steel lines would not be effected.

I agree with John, IF power steering fluid was mixed into the brake system, replacing all the flexible lines at each wheel would be a good precaution. If original, they could probably stand to be replaced anyway. Removing and rebuilding each caliper and rebuilding or replacing the master cylinder would also give peace of mind. When bleeding the rebuilt system you'll use fresh brake fluid and flush out any contaminated fluid. When things are apart, check and lube the brake pedal levers too.

Thank Yall So Much! I was going to replace the MC, and all rubber lines involved, as well as calipers at all four corners. I think I'm going to give this a shot at home... I really appreciate the positive reinforcement. Just going to take my time and get it done piece by piece.

As for the "tag" axel, I have read somewhere that that brake is operated by a vacuum booster?? is that right? if so that probably wouldn't be affected by this issue if it is its own system...

Thanks again guys!

Matt
