What symptoms are occurring? Do you have leakage of fluid? Do you have any warning lights at the dash?

The brake system has what is commonly referred to as a brake "bomb" and it will require replacement. The part number is 34-33-1-162-054 and can be obtained online at RealOEM. Com There is a picture of it there as well.
