Question about 1991 Volkswagen GTI
After getting passnger side bearings put on,breaks were weak.Pedal went to floor and now when I put brake fuel in it came out in 5 minutes.Still drive,but braking is dismall
First, I always recommend replacing brakes and bearings by the axle (in other words, both front wheels or both rear wheels). The reason for this is that likely as not the other side of the axle has the same problem and is also failing or ready to fail... Having said that I think that the most likely cause of this particular problem is a leaking brake hose. It is common for mechanics to mistakenly let the caliper assembly hang by the hose during service work... if this is the case then the guys who did the bearings should replace the hose and bleed the system. If this is what happened then you are totally right to ask them to do this as it is a safety issue!
