Had a guy on here some time this year that blew a stainless braided line, he lost all brake pressure. The EBD block didn't stop anything.. Does the MC have any fluid in it? Sounds like some sort of line in the brakeing system broke for sure..
Could you have not used the parking brake to stop? Instead of hitting the mailbox
Yep, that was me. I blew a front line. Front line replaced and as good as new.
The Following User Says Thank You to frontire For This Useful Post:
Loud pop, no brakes sounds like maybe a flex line. With todays split master cylinders you shouldn't lose all braking. If a front line went you would still have back brakes, but they aren't nearly as effective as the fronts. Check for brake fluid splashed around and if you see any on painted surfaces wash it off right away, that stuff will strip the paint clean off.
Needless to say don't drive any further.
I believe I covered that, and he did say "As for the brakes if pressed the pedal all the way to the floor there was slight slowing down but it would not stop me."
