    Fulvia Series 1 brake pedal return spring.

    Can anyone tell me where the brake pedal return spring locates? I just can't seem to work it out.

    If someone else doesn't get you an answer before then, I'll be down at my shop working on my car either tomorrow or Sunday and can take some pictures of the return spring for you then.

    Thanks Taddraughn. Its driving me mad. That and the fact I've tried 4 times to bleed the brakes and the pedal still goes to the floor with no resistance despite a rebuilt brake master cylinder, all new pipes and brake calipers.

    Re: Fulvia Series 1 brake pedal return spring.

    If the pedal goes to the floor the issue is not the return spring.
    I assume the Fulvia is a 1,3 without servo, which makes things easier.

    If you press the brake repeatedly, does it loose any fluid?
    If the system loose fluid it is quite easy to "follow the puddles".
    If the system is not loosing fluid, air get in somewhere, are you sure that all hoses have been replaced?
    There is a possibility that the connector for one of the hoses are leaking air.

    Hi Karl, I know the return spring is not the issue. I just want to know where it goes.

    did you bench bleed the master cylinder before installation? that makes a huge difference when bleeding the system. but if you don't get any pedal at all the master must still be faulty/assembled wrong.

    Re: Fulvia Series 1 brake pedal return spring.

    Hi, the problem was with the brake master cylinder.

    Now, can somebody tell me where the brake pedal return spring locates?

    I don't have time to scan the relevant Tavola, but it's attached to a lug on the pedal lever itself.

    Re: Fulvia Series 1 brake pedal return spring.

    spring is between a lug on the pedal and another on the pedals group mounting. Hard to see, got to go really below the dash to see it. Similar for clutch pedal return spring (in addition to the main clutch return spring under the bonnet).

    Re: Fulvia Series 1 brake pedal return spring.

    Meant to make it down to the shop to take a picture for you and work on my car, but I've developed a bad cold so just eating soup and trying to get better before I start my new job on Monday

    Hopefully Marnix explanation was enough for you to get it figured out.
