I HAVE A 1973 BEETLE IS THE BRAKES BAD?
Hello i have a 1973 beetle so every time i want to stop i have to "pump" the brake 4 or 5 times before it brakes need help please
For sure the master cylinder is shot, You will have to visually inspect the rest of the system.
is it necessary to bleed the brakes? or should i just check at the master cylinder
You can try bleeding the brakes, but I have found that if it does work it won't last long and brake pedal will start to slowly drop as you sit with the brake applied like at a traffic light, so you will wind up replacing the master cylinder anyway.
Thank u ill do that
