Master cylinder question

Post

Back to the top
Can I fit a master cylinder with just 4 outlets to my mk1 GTI ? I was going to put the brake light switch on the pedal instead.
Thanks
Chris

Yes you can, later cars and cabriolets used a brake pedal switch.  :thumbs:

The Cabriolets also had the proportional valves for the rear brake shoes/wheel cylinders on the MC on opposite corners.




What do Divorces, Great Coffee, and Car Electrics all have in common?

They all start with GOOD Grounds.

Where are my DIY Links?

83 gti they could be on the fender passenger side or next to the rear axle as they are possibly weight controlled.

I have a 93 Cabriolet they are on the MC.

Mine has a valve near the rear beam where the rear brake pipes go into, then out to each wheel. Is this it?

Picture?

Just to be 100% sure before giving advice as it is part of important equipment needed on a car… :thumbs:

Still not sorted this but getting closer. There are 2 sizes of master cylinder for the cabriolet according to VW heritage, 22.2mm or 20.6mm. Any ideas on which will fit my servo and brake system please?

these are the valves fitted to the master cylinder as per later cabbie set up . 22mm m/c are for the larger servo upgrade
