Since i posted about the brake problem my car have, a couple of hours ago, i inspected -again- that piece of troubles and i noticed an strange mchanical thing, picture this: on the rear right wheel, once removed, i saw a block of metal with four tubes coming out of it, two for both of the rear wheel :eek: , and the other two ¿?, but it has a sort of lever that attaches to the suspension bar of the wheel with the help of a thin metal rod surrounded with a coil -looks like a small strut- ...

when the car its on it wheel looks like that rod pushes another lever, like a flap, pressing a button or something, its nigth right now so i cant see clearly... dos nay body knows what is that or it purpose...????

what are the symp's of a defective master cilinder? -by the way-

it is the rear proportioning valve...it adjusts the amount of braking pressure to the rear as weight shifts from the back to the front of the car.
