Hi there, yes ours has just started-rear drivers side v hot-steaming and smelly-not having time to get out to the dealers i have just taken it apart-the pads seemed tight and there was no grease anywhere-so worked the piston in and out and greased it and the pad carriers and put it all back-need to go out for a a run now; there was no copper ease anywhere so am hoping it was just winter corrosion!
Did the pedal go to the floor?
Where the brakes noticeable hot?
If the answer is YES to these questions, suspect "vapour lock", high water content in the fluid.
The brakes will feel and work fine when all is cool again
Change Brake fluid with new DOT4 fluid from a sealed container every two years regardless of mileage.
Our i20 which is just over an year old had brake failure this morning, my wife was in a public car park where the brake pedal became non-responsive and car kept moving despite the brake pedal being fully pressed. She used hand brakes to stop it, luckily avoided going into other car. The RAC took the car to Arnold Clark, and they are telling me that they can not fault it. We are very worried to bring the car back home, has anybody else had similar problem.
