3 Answers


Collapsed brake hoses, brake distribution block plugged or tripped to front only, if so will need to be replaced.


If your brakes are that bad I would do a full brake hydraulic system rebuild. Replace the master cylinder, brake hoses and rebuild the wheel cylinders and then bleed the whole thing out with new fluid.


Thank you for your replies mechanic has fixed problem for now but still gonna change booster that has small leak and all lines
