Re: I think i have broke my breaks!

This grammer is getting ridculous now . . . (and yes im crap at it too before anyone says anything. )
There no need to keep on he came on asking for advice on his brakes not an english lesson.


They sometimes sequal if they are dry, copper grease will help but it they aint squeaking now i wouldnt worry.

You probabily overheated the brakes, no big problem, but as said if you keep doing it you will wear the brakes faster and need fluid changes more often, as the water that is absorbed into the fluid over time boils and creates little air bubbles in the fluid. Then When you brake they squash and reduce the effectiveness of your brakes and give the pedal a spongey feel.

If you are really concerned with them (if they are working normmal now they should be ok). . go to one of the nearest tyre places and get them to give you a free brake check.
Thanks im2welsh4u thanked for this post
