    Changed all the four railings of my Khyber's front seats. The earlier ones were having a play.

    seems thats the case.. he did air bleed from all wheels, how to know if air is still there?

    Kit will be replaced in master cylinder or whole cylinder gone bad? and do u know cost of cylinder?

      But I think since this pipe is on the input side of master cylinder, no bleeding will be needed. Air bubbles will come up through the bottle on their own, am I right?

      Also pls elaborate brake oil change procedure. How will we drain the old oil from the system? from the bleeding nipples in the sequence you mentioned above?




      Sorry bro, you are not right thinking that air will come up once you have fitted a new pipe and fill the reservoir afterwards. I wouldnt have insisted if you havent wrote "am i right?" otherwise its your car and your call.

      You may disagree with my point , its your right but I have to stick to my point on this one as i would have made sure the system is bled properly before i take the car on the road for the sake of my family and other's.

      Brief procedure for brake fluid change
      1. with the help of a syringe, empty out the brake fluid reservoir.
      2. fill it to the full mark with new oil of the same grade
      3. bleed in the sequence mentioned in the previous post
      4. bleed till you see fresh oil coming out of each nozzle.
      5. Dont let the fluid level in the reservoir to drop below low mark.

      Be safe.






    Looks like mechanic messed up with break fluid change.. should have read this procedure before changing

    I had the same issue of brake pedal going all the way down. It was a bad master cylinder and I'll advise to change it immediately. You're losing most of the braking and the car may not stop...

    A Taiwan made master cylinder was available of brand BGF costing about 2700rs iirc. Otherwise the original Aisin master cylinder has to be sourced from bilal gunj but there's no guarantee about those parts.

    @axe.effect. you may start the car for your ease as moving pedal will be easy but i recommend to do it when off and place something under the pedal that limits the movement of the pedal so it doesn't go all the way, even by accident.

    Bleed the brake farthest from the brake fluid reservoir. I did it like rear left, rear right, front left, front right in that order. Put the spanner first on nozzle then fit pipe on nozzle so its covered fully. Gently open the nozzle making sure pipe stays in place. If the nozzle hasn't been opened before chances are its stuck so spray some wd 40 and wait and try again. Keep bottle above nozzle and always have a small amount of fluid in the bottle so the nozzle sucks fluid and not air when you leave the pedal.

    P.S: Always have plenty of brake fluid and monitor the level in reservoir after few pumps.

    yes kabli is garbage.

    sometimes a master cylinder can be rebuilt, if the bore is good.

    there is a section in service manual for that

    @Dude

    car is stopping. But as explained by Xulfiqar bhai that seals go bad if fluid is very old and pumped all way down. Now my mechanic is saying that he will change seals in cylinder. I will see him tmw or in this week. I will share results with u after whatever work gets done.
    First I will go for again air bleed.
    If prob not solved, then replacement of seals in master cylinder.

    Went to mechanic for break issue as mentioned in my earlier posts. He did air bleed again and hurray! breaks are now awesome again

    . I have replaced oil with Shell helix ultra full synthetic, engine giving much better response but some leak has started and i see oil drop in my garage. As per mechanic, sump is installed incorrectly with silicone and from which oil is dropping. Lets see it later.

    From now, feeling good with car. Will go for inner repair, alignment and some tuning (maybe replacing that plastic thing with conducting plate inside distributor, dont know its name).

    Got the name. Its "Rotor Arm".
    @Xulfiqar
    My rotor arm is scratched and i think never replaced since the car was bought new in 2000. Shall i replace it or is it fine to use it after scratching it with sand paper? And what about distributor cap? Actually my car is taking bit long selfs to start.

    Done with bleeding of all four tyres as per suggested. Brakes are now working equal and way better than before. Thanks a lot.

    Last time, it was done with same sequence, but without pipe and bottle setup and the brake pedal had almost 2 inch free travel.

    A little play has developed in my car's driver side seat, so would love to replace the rails on my car. You got them new or removed of some seat? It's been quite long since I visited the auto market in detail.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    They are new. I found them after a lot of search. Waseem autos, Potohar Autos Saddar, Pakistan Autos Chah Sultan, none had them. Found them at Jan Autos Saddar (Near Waseem Autos) for Rs.2900/- They are quite heavy.

    The shop with 5~6 stairs? located in the street leading to Bao Mohalla?
    I think this is the same shop from where I got the SGP air filter for my Khyber last time.
    How is the result? That unwanted play totally eliminated or not? Moreover what about the way the seats slide? Effortless or are they hard to move?
