SOURCE: Ducati 749 Brake Judder?

Plenty of tales about warped discs to go with that one, but it seems that it can be fouled-up disc mounting bobbins - the dust and crud get in and stop them from "floating". try a small bolt thru the bobbin with a nut to lock it, then spin it while spraying with brake cleaner (or soapy water) and you'll free the bobbins off thus restoring the flex and float.....worked for me. Quite a bit of dust and muck come out....try grasping the disc and see if it does actually float on the bobbins before and after

Check to make sure the spring that is attatched to the brake is not worn out.

If it is a cable operated brake, which I dont think it would be, check to make sure the cable inside the brake line is not rusted and moves freely. if it doesnt you will need to replace that.

Last but not least, if it has drum breaks, which it probably has, check the spring inside the drum to make sure that operates correctly.

If a spring gets old sometimes you can get lucky and spray some lubricant (WD-40) and get it to work.

SOURCE: NO brakes

brake fluid will create rust in the braking system and that is why it should be replaced at the proper intervals.
The rust most probably was already in the system before it was garaged

Are you just checking the marks or did you change the belts??? Your 749 falls into a different category than most desmoquatros, It is in the 998, 999 family. And, It is a minor nightmare to pull the belts off without setting up the marks before the belts come off. Your cams will be at 12 o-clock, the marks straight up, the belts are clearly marked, or should be, the number of teeth in between the cams can be counted, if all 3 marks line up, you know it is aligned right. That is the crankcase and the 2 cams. I have pages of info on this if you want to read it. You will have to let me know. Hope this helps. 2002 S4,,, 99 750 monster

Is it possible that the brake booster is the one responsible for loss of pressure during braking??


Make sure you don't have a leak in a line or in a caliper that is by passing the cylinder. If you can't find any fluid leaks then I would change the master cylinder for the brakes as it may be losing pressure in the master cylinder its self. In addition, be sure you don't have air in the brake lines. You may want to check for air in lines before changing the master cylinder, either way you will need to bleed the brakes.

Brake system failure


I think brake proportional Valve (or Brake pressure regulator) which usually a part of Master cylinder is suspicious.
It regulates pressure to Front and Rear brake line.

If I were you, I try to draw air from Master-cylinder side (not Caliper side).
(Bleed from connector between Master-cylinder and pipe, same way as caliper. someone keep pushing brake then you lose connector then tight. Don't forget to put towel under master cylinder to catch brake fluid)
If air trapped in Proportional valve (pressure regulator), pressure won't relay to rear brake line but only front side.
Front has two separate line from master cylinder (right and left) but rear goes in one line from master cylinder then separate at rear.

Did you noticed both rear brake dragged when it's hot day ?
Because when air get hot, air expand and pushes to caliper and drag but not respond to your pedal.
(calipers don't respond when you push pedal, but it's pushes calipers by itself even you are not pushing pedal, when it's hot because air expand)
Sometimes, seal get old and lose pressure for only one side (front or rear).

if this happened after you did brake job, or you notice your brake was vapor locked (too much brake on hot day then brake fluid boiled), maybe air bleed and whole fluid change may solve.
if you didn't have any unusual activity but it gradually losing pressure to rear, I suspect master cylinder (proportional valve seal).

Sorry I don't have exact e46 master cylinder diagram but basic diagram, hope you can understand what I am talking about.
Picture shows "leak" but this case "Air" in somewhere in pink.
or lose seal on rear piston.

2005 Chevy Equinox left front brake caliper locks up


Your vehicle should have rear drum brakes...They have to be adjusted manually for correct adjustment...People say they self adjust but it is not good enough....by adjusting the rear it will decrease the pressure on the front and deliver equal braking...This will help eliminate caliper pressure overload....I'm not saying that is your caliper problem but it is insult to injury and will save the life of front brakes.....Now your caliper problem..FYI..A rule of thumb is anytime you change a caliper you should always replace both calipers to have identical braking pressure".The same with brake hoses and rear wheel cylinders.....The caliper that froze in the first place got hot and boiled the brake fluid and quite possibly partially collapsed the caliper brake line/hose inside as Clint and Frank stated....I am going to guess that the first caliper froze under normal conditions however got hot enough to internally damage the caliper line/hose...Then you may think of the pressure regulator being bad in which case could be a problem......So this is what you do".Since we know the left front caliper line/hose has been exposed to heat it needs to be replaced anyway...also the fluid was boiled and it needs to be changed / bled...The new caliper that froze should be ok unless it was bad off the shelf which is rare but possible."..Change the line/hose,bleed the brake system and let the mechanic test drive before you pay and leave..The mechanic will know before driving if the new caliper that froze is bad or not by rotating the wheel...This is the cheapest way...And you will know if the pressure regulator is bad or not just by bleeding system........I hope this helps....."Brooks/Metalpoet....."....

all dodge caravans from 2002 through 2011 have known problems with sticking calipers. if you google caravan brake problems you will see all the complaints. there are TBI's and recalls on them. I have a 2005 dodge caravan in my garage with all 4 calipers locked up. It is a good idea to replace the brake pads with the best ones and new rotors to

Brake light coming off and on


Check the fluid level. Low brake fluid level can cause the brake light to come on warning you of low fluid. It will be off when the car is level, but as you hit bumps and hit your brakes, the fluid that is in there will slosh around indicatind low fluid. Don't overfill and only use DoT 3 brake fluid. Do not substitute anything else.

Jeep liberty front brakes lock on ?


is it both wheels? check the line going to the wheel or wheels that are locking up, if there is any sign of a fluid leak replace the line. when they leak they will apply enough pressure to lock the brake, but will not release the pressure there for it stays locked

Hot front wheels


Replace brake hoses,they have an inner core that has ruptured and the outside rubber core is keeping pressure on the caliper with you foot off the brake. This will fix it! A common problem for this vehicle.
