110 Brake Issues

Hi,

Looking for some advice please. The rear brakes on my 1988 110 had started to squeal. I did not use her for a few weeks - when I started her up the brake pedal is soft and the brake fluid was low. I add new fluid but pedal is still soft. Wondered if anyone had any ideas as to what is going on?

Thanks
Ben

IF the fluid is low it is going somewhere. Track the fluid loss.

Thank you - I think it is from the front brakes. Any idea what that means?

Whip the wheel off and get a good look. Could be brake caliper leaking or a hose.

It was actually the rear brake shoes. They had rusted and were leaking. Loudoun Land Rover bled the system for me to get me back on the road and have ordered new shoes.
