New Brake Booster and Master Cylinder
From the last couple of weeks my Khyber was reducing brake fluid. Checked all four wheels but there were no signs of leakage. Yesterday I saw that there was seepage all around master cylinder.
Took the car to mechanic and on visual inspection he said that master cylinder seals need to be replaced. Brought seals and opened the master cylinder but the wear was too much and the mechanic said there is no point of replacing the seals now. You need a new master cylinder.
Went to Ahata Mithu Khan Saddar Rawalpindi. There were shops which deals only in brake parts (kabli) and they have a lot of stuff but unfortunately no parts for Khyber. At this point the mechanic suggested that I should go for alteration and get some other car's master cylinder but I did not want that.
So we kept looking and finally one shop had a complete set of AISIN Japan for Khyber. The set includes Master Cylinder, Brake booster, bottle and bottle lid and it was in pretty good condition. He was asking Rs. 6500/- for it. The shopkeeper said I am not giving you just the master cylinder alone. My set will be useless. So I had to buy the whole set for Rs. 5500/-
Got all the four brakes bled and serviced. Now brakes are as good as new.
