“The job presented some unexpected challenges, but Matt dealt with all of them in a very professional and timely manner and completed the job to a high standard. Matt picked up the job and attended the following day. It came to attention that some other parts also needed replacing to make the motor safe as they were corroded. That was also taken care of at the same time. Matt is an absolute credit to the auto repairs trade and I will go back to him if something else is required in the future.“

What does a Brake Master Cylinder do?

The brake master cylinder (together with the brake booster) is the heart of the braking system, distributing the pressure generated by the brake pedal when braking over the car's four wheels (by way of the brake fluid).

How do you know there is something wrong with a Brake Master Cylinder?

  • When the brake pedal feels soft under braking.
  • When the brake warning light on the car's dashboard is on.
  • When the brake fluid level is low.
  • When there is a patch of transparent fluid visible under the car (pointing to a leak in the system).

When should you consider replacing a Brake Master Cylinder?

The master cylinder has internal and external seals which can wear out over time. When the external seals are worn brake fluid can leak out and prevent the brakes from working properly. If the internal seals have worn out or have been damaged only an inadequate amount of brake fluid will be transfered to the brake units at the wheels.

On both occassions, it will lead to a brake pedal that feels soft. Meaning that the pedal will not have as much pressure as normal and can be pushed right down too the floor with ease. Braking performance will deteriorate and it can potentially lead to dangerous situations on the road. In this instance, it is advisable that you do not drive the car but have the system checked over as soon as possible by a mechanic who can come to you.

Servicing the brake master cylinder is key to ensure adequate braking performance. Always service the brakes according to the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer. Neglecting the brake system can, over time, lead to other and more expensive repairs as well as dangerous situations on the road.

What happens during a Brake Master Cylinder replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the brake system.
  • Mechanic will check the brake master cylinder to establish if it should be replaced.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the brake master cylinder.
  • Mechanic will renew the brake fluid.
  • Mechanic will bleed the brake system.
  • Mechanic will inspect the brake system and will, if deemed safe, do a test drive.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will make any adjustments to the brakes.

How much does a Brake Master Cylinder Replacement cost?
