    know how you feel, i was like that last week, not nice, all breaks was shot, and needed new cylinders, pads and discs due to break fluid leaking all over it!
    even the handbreak wasnt fully working on it, van still rolling on hill, had to put it in gear to keep it still while parked!
    £180 for mine to get fixed!

    all happens at once, not really worked much due to the weather so far this year, but spent about £600 on van, still needs to front tyres yet, and the pheonix pole!

    at least we know that all will be safe in the vans now! and didnt find out the hard way!
