Re assurance needed
My brakes failed yesterday in London, they were binding, getting worse then pedal went to waited then peddle ok.....I guess there was fluid vapourised because of the binding.
I relaced the pads freed up the caliper carriage and replaced the fluid.......It seems fine now but have I missed something?, If I fit a new caliper do I have to fit both?
thanks for reading this

If you are not losing brake fluid I would be looking at the master cylinder. It might be that the internal seals are not holding the pressure.
