Go slow to start!
Once you have fitted up your new VW Type 2 brakes, take it easy for a few 100 miles. Heavy braking on brand new Bay Window brake discs could cause them to warp, then you’ll be back to square one, and replacing them again!
Bay Window brakes stuck on?
It’s not uncommon to hear that a VW Type 2 brake caliper or Bay Window drum brake has got stuck on, causing the disc or Type 2 brake drum to get hot, and of course wear down the VW Campervan brake shoes or pads unevenly. Whilst this fault could be due to a sticky VW Camper brake caliper, or faulty VW Bay Window wheel cylinder, it could also be a perished Type 2 brake hose causing the issue. Traditional ‘rubber’ Bay Window brake hoses can break down inside over time, and create a one way valve inside the hose, locking the VW Bus Brake fluid into the caliper or wheel cylinder, and jamming on that brake.
