I've got a question for anyone that can help me. I have a 1994 Jetta GLS with 4 wheel disc. I have replaced all calipers, both front rotors, All Brake pads and the Master cylinder for the brakes. I drive the car for about 10 minutes and i lose all pedal. Only the front driver side brake is working it is the only one that has scraped the rotor.
The back driver side brake only works on the inside of the caliper and has completely worn through two sets of brake pads and ruined my brand new caliper.
Is there any recalls on the brakes in these cars or has someone had this problem or heard of this happening? I am thinking that maybe the lines are collapsed inside??? but why are the brakes only working on the driver side??? Everything is Brand New!!!! The shop that replaced everything bleed the brakes until there was absolutely NO air.

Absolutely any feedback on this problem is greatly appreciated, I brought this car to a VW specialist and even he had never seen anything like it.

Thanks
Ryan

STR8TDUBBED, I have a 1994 VW Golf and tonight I locked my brakes up and the pedal went to the floor. I thought I blew a line but surprisingly, no fluid loss for about 50kms. At this point, I only have brake on the front drivers tire and on my emergency, but thats a cable. I'm thinking that its either the master cylinder or the power brake booster but if the booster was shot, I should still have manual brakes all around. I checked this site tonight to see what it might be so you're not alone ... I'll write back if I find out anything. You may have it fixed now as its been over 2 weeks. Later/

I would think your power booster might have went or your porportion valve maybe shot!You said you are not losing any fluid right?So all your brake lines should still be good then.Let me know if this helps.By the way where did you get the mastercylinder from?I used to work at a napa and once and a while you can get a bad master cylinder you know!

there may be air in the brake lines, especially if u just were working on all the brakes. if you had the brake lines disconnected u may need to bleed the brakes to get the air out of the lines. its jus a possibility.
