What are the symptoms of a bad master cylinder?

  • When the brake pedal feels soft under braking and continues to the floor without pressure.

How long will a brake master cylinder replacement take?

On average, brake master cylinder repair times can range from under 1 hour to 1.5 hours with an average of around 1 hours. The time that the job takes will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How often should I replace the 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 correctly. Should the internal seal fail, the system will not create sufficient pressure in the hydraulic system, so replacing the master cylinder is imperative and with immediate effect as 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.

How long does a master cylinder last?

Although it's not a common failure point on vehicles, obviously wear and tear will take its toll over time and eventually like everything where rubber acts against a metal surface it will wear out.

Can you drive with a bad master cylinder?

If you experience any untoward characteristics in your braking, or if you suspect there is any issue with the brake master cylinder or there are concerns about its age or condition, book a diagnostic inspection immediately and do not drive the vehicle.
