I was just woken up with a call from my woman that the brakes in my car no longer work. I am wondering (just like the rest of you who have not seen it either) if maybe the delicately designed levers into the booster have come undone. The only info I have is that: 1: There are no brakes. 2: There is brake fluid. My other thought is that the front pads have finally gone south (I've been waiting for that as well, hence saving this on my ebay page: eBay Motors: 83 90 Alfa Spider Veloce F Brake Rotor Pads Kit Rotors (item 190038753878 end time Oct-31-07 06:33:38 PDT)). Anyone care to point out other areas of interest for me?
How did she stop to make the call?
I don't see the booster being an issue. Maybe the cotter pin broke from the pedal to the booster.
You can see of the MC is a problem, it is right on top.
pads, no way. You would have hit the wear markers that give a nice squeal if they where low. Even if they where to the lowest point they should still stop the car. Lets not forget the rears are most likely 1/4 or more than the fronts on most occasions!
Should have stopped the car fine. Maybe not great but good enough. There are a lot of safety features with braking systems.
Maybe something you did previously as this does not sound like a common problem that spider owners encounter?! Interesting though.
