my brakes cut out about a month a go. It still has a little bit of brakes but not much! Can push it in about a centimetre or 2. Not mechanically minded need advice.

Could it be case of just needing to be beeded!

Don't piss around with brakes. Get them seen to now.

don't worry the tow truck driver will be able to advise you soonenough.

Have a look thru the wheel spokes (or if you cant' take the wheel off) and you can see how much life is left on the pads. if it is reasonable try bleeding it. first step and cheapest.

I see from your other thread it is diesel, can you go out to the truck, sit in the drivers seat, pump the brake pedal as hard as you can, using both feet, hold it down and then start the engine normally. Tell me if the pedal stays in the same position or you can feel it sink a bit under your feet after the engine fires up.

thanks for this, I got my brother inlaw to have a look and it needs a new altinator in order for the brakes to work, something about suction or something like that.
