Lockhead seemed to mention Brake Fluid and hydrolics

Bendix seems to mention a lot of compressed Air on Heavy vehicles and stuff

So i'm saying punto has lockhead - as we use hydraulic pressure in form of brake fluid

Hi mate,

As Sgt Rich says you need to look at the calipers etc, and it will be on there some where, as you could have either. My bet is Bendix, but could be either.
