My son`s 2006 Ka has an intermittent brake problem, once every few days the brake pedal goes virtually to the floor. He pumps the pedal and it comes back up. The brakes are then fine again for a few more days and then the same thing will happen again. We have bled the system and checked all the brakes physically, we even took the car to our local garage who couldn`t find fault either. They suggested replacing the brake master cylinder as a precautionary measure, something my son and I are quite capable of doing ourselves. The problem is find a new one as the car has ABS and the master cylinders appear to be unavailable through the aftermarket. I will not pay for a new Ford one as they are over £300, more than the car is probably worth. I am now looking for a decent second hand one. Any advice on this matter would be helpful please. Thank you.
