I know the brakes need to be done (rotars need replacing and was planning on doing this in a week or so) but today I went to brake and there was no pressure on the pedal and I came to a very slow skidding stop (thankful I didnt collide with the vehicle in front) - what's suddenly gone wrong?
Do you

Check to see if there is any brake fluid at the wheels and the master cyl level. If all O.K. Then you have an internal failure in the master cyl. Replace

Yep, fluid on the inside of the rim on driver's side. Thanks for the prompt response.

Guess your brakes decided they did not want to wait.
Glad to here you where not involved in a bender.
Good luck on your repair
