Off to France next week so took the van to local garage for a service.

Hes rung me three times so far-
apart from the standard service and brake bleed it needs
cv joint
front discs
other 'little things' that he hasnt fully described.

Guess how much it costs with vat??

prize for the winner!!

You pos its the calipers. I'd put money on it being the brake hoses if the calipers have been hanging around on them while the discs were changed and you had no problems before. Maybe they are damaged inside and not allowing fluid to return. Worth the garage checking . Good luck m8.
