Master cylinder decided to retire. Thankfully I had a spare on the shelf.

Getting started. Used a turkey baster to pull out the fluid from the brake fluid reservoir, then removed the old master cylinder.





Going back together.





Ran into this upon reassembly. Replaced it with a spare.



The brakes feel much better than a month ago when I first dove into them for maintenance. Hoping this is the all it needs on brakes before winter

So the Master Plan involves the V50 (T5 AWD) across the street. It belongs to a neighbor that has had shops tell him it has a "tranny issue". The plan involves parting my 744 and put most of it into the 745. This is all tentative, but you can see where I'm going

Wait, WTF man, what are you doing with my wife's car across from yours? She's in an 09 V50T5 AWD R-Design, same color and wheels even. Nice for a commuter for sure, a little small for a hauler. Dunno about trans issues, but I'm getting ready to do a fluid change on hers, given it's around 120k.

I'll save you the trouble Jason...Castrol Transmax is compatible with the JWS3309 spec if you want to put good fluid in it. The M1 multi-car is not, but they do have a JWS3309 fluid, bit harder to find.

Good to know a fluid change helped! Hers is having some serious lag time on the 2-3 shift, hoping I can do the fluid, rerun the adaptation on the TCM and call it a day.

That's exactly what mine was doing before the fluid change.

Good to know, thank you both for the info! My worry with the V50 is that the owner is the type of person to 'use a car up' and then park it. He says it was only parked due to the transmission, but I will see how everything else looks next week when I bring the car in my garage for a look.

For now, the mad scientist (my roommate) brought home these ramps from his parent's place. And now he is doing electrical wizardry
