Beach Buggy Rolling Chassis Help / Re: Brake bleed query
« Last Post by mad4slalom on April 06, 2020, 10:26:58 PM »
Without reading the whole thread and without stating the obvious have you tried loosening the pipe/hose that goes into the caliper. If fluid is pumping out of there but not getting through the caliper then the caliper's at fault, if there's no fluid coming from the hose then there's a blockage between the m/cyl and the caliper.
yes, tried loosening flexi from caliper and plenty of fluid . New caliper on its way, very helpful chaps at Just Kampers, no quibble ,even pay the postage for the return of faulty caliper. Great company. Will report back when fitted, thanks again everyone for all help and advice. 👍

Also try Lee Southerton at Volksmagic 0121 541 2278.

Lee has many many contacts in the VW world and can get most things. He got my last original coupling no problem.

Thanks

Agreed, I would pay for and get reinforced if I could, but neither Just Kampers or Heritage show them on their websites ;)

This one looks to be the right type but I need to check if they ship to the UK - https://www.paruzzi.com/uk/volkswagen/front-axle-steering/steering/3369/

Cheers :)

Here it is... Just Kampers... A tad over 35    (It is genuine VW)

Thanks Paul.

When I said I'd order 2 I meant from the Dutch site, but that was before I read your link ;)

I shall go with the genuine from JK.

Cheers :)
