    Question Civic 96 brakes

    Hi guys. I have an office car civic 96 and its brakes are a bit messed up. The brakes work fine if u press the pedal hard.. but u can press the pedal halfway through and there is no effect and just after the halfway mark the car stops abruptly.. I got the brake disks and drums checked and installed new brake pads also checked the servo too.. but the fault has not gone away.. any ideas Suggestions on what to do..???

    i think the rotor needs to be polished.by the passage of time and sumtimes due to frequent heavy braking, the rotor( the shiny disc type thing) gets small ridges in it which changes the surface which has to come in contact with the pads, this causes abrupt braking, shaking steering wheel and noise when braking.

    take ur car to a good mechanic, get the rotors checked, if the problem is as above, the mechanic can polish the rotor but if its in toooo bad condition, u ll have to get new one.

    Which brake pads you replaced. If they are not genuine, brakes will never work properly. Replace the pads with orignal ones and polish the rotors if required. It will work fine

    also ask the mechanic to check the master cylinder... get it serviced if required.

    try changing the brake fluid then, by the passage of time, it absorbes moisture and reduces effectiveness of brakes...

    @ Jazzman:

    AhmadBila is right change the brake fluid and bleed all the wheel properly, this will resolve the issue if everything else is ok.

    Put Liqui Moli Dot4 Brake fluid. Its the best but little expensive.

    If this oil change and bleeding of wheels didnt work then there is problem with the servo mechanism and needs to be replaced.

    first change the oil and check.
