Sounds like there may be air in the lines, but more then likely the master cylinder is not disengaging all the way, you may need to put a spacer between the master cylinder and the booster. Hope this helped Tim

Suzuki Grand Vitara 1999:


Going by your description I think it could be something different, I would have the brake master cylinder checked, if you are suffering brake failure and shuddering it sounds like your callipers arent getting equal pressure when you apply the brakes. Or a freat lack of pressure to suffer brake failure. I hope this helps.

Hi ive got brake problems with my suzuki vitara 1.6 8v s reg ive changed the master cylinder and the brake pads and they wont bleed when i turn the engine on there are no brakes and when i turn it off...


Is the new cylyder new or used?
Do you know the seals are ok(master cyl. and calipers/slave)?
Have you blead front and rear?
Is the front lines out , connected to the front?
These are some of the mistakes I have made with brakes and obvious things to check/ask, but never overlook the obvious.

Suzuki Vitara front brakes seizing intermitantely.


Be sure you have changed the break oil completely. Otherwise drain the hydraulic system and renew with correct type of oil. If you have a ABS system you have to check that also.
