1st do not operate the vehicle.
many localities have a 'mobile mechanic' type business - the on site price might be less than having the vehicle towed to the PROFESSIONL:

If you don't know what you are doing, Brakes is not the place to learn.

I agree, call a tow truck.

X2 - Brakes are no place to learn or try by trial and error. No way any instructive video or long read is a replacement for hands on professional know how to show you how and do properly or don't touch them and tow it for proper repair,

Everyone thinks they're a mechanic until something goes wrong.

What is wrong with the brakes? Does the pedal go to the floor? Not much information you provided. I agree with the others.





Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

Morning DS! Cool
marcomuller - What probably happened is you just pushed back pistons to make room for new thickness of lining and put it back together even might have greased things as required but when you first pushed the pedal it went all the way to the floor making up the clearance of an old rotor or could anyway and master cylinder wasn't used to going to the floor so tore up all the seals inside it. It would barely bleed now and you are really screwed.


It's not safe now - don't drive it,
