After having the hydraulic fluid renewed on a service I was not happy with brake pedal travel. After 20miles travel the car appeared to lose power. I found that the diagonal callipers had seized on resulting in distruction of the pads and overheating of the discs. It was recovered to the servicing garage who now tell me the master cylinder had failed on one circuit resulting in renewal of this and, all discs and pads and one calliper. At a cost of £805.00. Could the fault have been incorect air bleeding of the braking system

The condition of the old fluid may have caused the failure. The fluid needs to be changed just like your engine oil.

Waiting till there is an issue will not correct an already failed system. You will have to replace all those components and have the system flushed.

Make sure you keep up on changing the fluid from here forward
