    brakes stuck on.........

    Driving yesterday,pulled up and felt the caddy stop by it self ,got out with it out of gear and the h/brake off ,could not push it back or forwards,drove back home 2 miles,and there was a bit of smoke from the wheels,left it over night and it has freed off,put it on a ramp this morning and there is brake fluid on the bottom off the master cylinder....Oh pedal was really hard yesterday.....now back to normal...Any help would be......great thanks.....
    P.S. Also need a good VW tech near SE London...for other jobs....cheers.

    Heat has forced the fluid back and the solid pedal is the master cylinder being forced back, which brake(s) was hot?

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Yes but that maintains vacuum for a few presses if the engine stops. The old classic cause was insufficient master cylinder push rod clearance, as the brakes warm up they expand and push the fluid back, too small a gap and there is no room and then the problem becomes runaway until all the brakes get so hot you stop, even if you don't want to, I just can't imagine why that would happen on your van. The only time I used to see it was on Beetles and Golf 1's where the cross linkage had been tweaked too far.
