I guess there is some leakage in your braking system, mostly the leakage will be in the cylinders in rear drum..check them out it ll solve the problem.

And for more power you can istall the booster brakes(vaccume brakes).
If you need details I can share with you..

Re: Brakes Problem in Maurti 800

Fixing the vacuum brake makes it like a modern day car. also a easy job in 800.

SELECT a empty road.

drive around 30+ like in 40 or 50kmph,

leave the hands from steering and brake.

does it pull?
if yes , sure sign of leaking in brake cylinder!

hmmm else it just takes 20 min to open up rear brake drum. mech must help!

Hi, It costs me 5k for the whole assembly and fitting, these brakes are already fitted in all new cars. Even Omni and nano(cx\lx) has it now.
I will post the pictures of the booster later..[:)]

Brake Problem

I have a maruti car800,model 2002,MPFI engine. The problem is that the brake is not working,every thing has been checked and is ok but is not not working,the brakes need to be pumped for 7-8 times to stop the car. So how does it happen like that?

Re: brake problem

Seems like you need to get the master and slave cylinders serviced/replaced. Ask your mechanic to check them out.

Re: brake problem

Also if possible try to get the booster installed (can make a huge difference). total cost of Brake booster install, along with a few parts change in drum will come to about 5000/- (max, including labour)

Re: brake problem

You have to check the master cylinder if its o then there is chances that its due to air bubble in brake line or any of break cylinder have minor leakage that result in making air bubble in line.

Yes it would work for 2-3 times (till the vacuum exists in the booster) then the pedal would get hard and the brake wont work as it should.
