You may need the brakes bled and checked for leaks. You may not be seeing any leaks because there is no fluid in the brakes. Have a local bike shop check it out.

Jerking range rover When braking 2009 model

Hi, Try replacing the front brake pads. If the pads become contaminated dirt ,oil or grease they won't work properly.
Before you replace the pads check that the hydraulic oil is not leaking out. Dot 3 or 4. Good luck.

Ford bantam workshop manual

Hi, follow this checklist for hydraulic clutch;
1. Reservoir fluid level above minimum,
2.Indication of fluid leakage from: master cylinder, slave cylinder, hydraulic line or reservoir base. Look for accumulated moist dirt. Note: A clean engine bay is a serviceable one.
3. Check for a 0.032" gap between the slave cylinder piston and clutch lever. Adjust piston rod length to establish a gap [under floor near gearbox/bell housing] CAUTION: Ensure vehicle is braked and chocked. Note: a. No or too little gap = partial engagement & reduced drive [slipping clutch] b. Excessive gap = partial declutch.
4. When 3 is o.k., while underneath have someone depress the clutch pedal while you check clutch lever operation. Lack of movement indicates bleeding [similar procedure as for brakes] is required to remove air. Good luck & let me know how it goes.

I actually have an 08 Dawg. I love it, but the back brakes have never worked correctly. I have taken it to two differnet shops and it works fine for one ride, then its back to almost no back brakes and...

If the brake adjustment is good for awhile but bad after a bit of use it sounds like thsomething is leaking brake fluid or they weren't bled properly to begin with. A GOOD shop would figure this out the by the second time.

How do i adjust avid juicy 3 hydraulic brake pads?

Hi there. I have a set of these and you can only adjust where on the lever the pads engage on the disk. To do this adjust the small Allen key that is behind the lever, ensure you are not unscrewing the grub screw that removes the lever. If they are rubbing try returning the pads with a screwdriver and a rag to stop damage to the pads. Then re-center them by loosening the tri-align bolts, applying the brake (you may have to pump it first) and tightening the bolts with the brake still on.

How do i adjust my disc brakes on my bike. i have to pull them all the way in to work

first off, there are two kinds of disk brakes on bicycles; cable actuated and hydraulic. Your adjustment will be very different depending upon which type you have.

If you don't know what type you have it is easy to tell, there will be a brake cable sticking out the end of the caliper if they are cable actuated. If they are hydraulic, you won't see any cables on the calipers.

I can tell you now if you have hydraulic brakes you may not want to attempt this at home. They require a special bleeding kit specific to the particular brand and model that you might have. You will also need special brake fluid depending upon the brand of brakes, they are not universal, some use mineral oil others use particular DOT fluids. Additionally if you have hydraulic brakes and the levers are going all the way to the handlebars, then it sounds like you may have a bigger problem and have air in the lines and need a brake bleed job.

If you have cable actuated disc brakes then you can easily adjust them yourself with only a 5mm Allen wench.

First, run out the cable barrel adjuster on your brake lever until it is almost out.
Second, using the 5mm Allen wrench, loosen (don't remove) the cable clamp at the caliper. Now hold the cable end in one hand and push the actuating lever up until the pads contact the rotor. It is spring loaded so you will have to hold it in place with one, pull the cable through and then tighten the cable clamp.

Third, go back to the brake lever and you should not have any "play" in the lever or very little. Turn the cable barrel adjuster back into the brake lever and this will ease the brake pads off the rotor and allow the wheel to turn freely.

Often it will take several minute cable adjustments to get it right.

If the rotor is rubbing on the inner brake pad, you can adjust that pad in or out using the 5mm Allen wrench. The inner pad is "fixed" and doesn't move when the brakes are applied. You can access the Allen head bolt through the spokes with the long end of the wrench and make minor adjustments of 1/4 turn at a time. It could be tight, so you might need to put a box end wrench on the end of the Allen wrench to turn it.

Hope this helps and post any further questions.

Braking pads are not retracting. The lever dosent go fully back after breaking. Is there any spring in lever which should retract pads making underpressure in the system? Lever on front wheel which are ok...

There isn't a spring in hydraulic disc brakes for bicycles. If the lever isn't going back, that means the hydraulic fluid isn't going back into the master cylinder to push the lever back out. You could have pistons in the caliper that are binding. At three years old, it is common to have the entire system rebuilt with new seals. There could be dirt that is interfering with the proper operation of the brake.

Your brake failed and you need to take it to a good bicycle repair shop in your area. Hydraulic brakes on bicycles are not easy to self service as you need specialized tools and the proper replacement parts.

2003 R6 Rear Brake doesn't function.

I suggest replace all fluid & while the caliper is off for a pad change check the caliper pistons are not seized -"copperslip" around the piston means they will move more freely when you brake. Bleed properly as air bubbles can cause what your describing.

Brake is engaged on the disk at all times tried pushing plungers apart but pads are still too close... brake system is Avid Code

You didn't say which model but it sounds like there is a blown seal in your brake lever. You'll have to get it serviced which will also require a brake bleed. Have them check both brakes while they are at it.
