yes its devastating. the master cylinder didn't fit so they took bits off and put in mine. it drives fine and then for no reason it just pulls back and doesn't want to drive forward. today, all four wheels were hot to touch. when it was in neutral and the handbrake was off it wouldn't move at all. the AA man loosened the master cylinder and took the hoses off to let the fluid out, then towed me to the garage. i really don't want to get rid of my car but if i can't find the right part then i don't know what to do.

If you can't get a master cylinder you may be able to get a master cylinder repair kit, but there's quite a few variations, need VIN number to ensure the correct one, registration number is no use as it only refers to the registration date not the build date

Please could anyone help me. I have had new calipers and brake pads on the rear of my car a fortnight ago. All has been fine until saturday when all of a sudden the car wasn't pulling as well and the brake pedal was up and really hard. The garage thought it might have been the servo but the car wouldn't move when it was switched off so they thought maybe not. They have said it could be the master cylinder but they can't find one anywhere. Does anyone know where there might be one available to buy? Its an M reg. 2 litre turbo. japanese import. I have spent a lot of money on the car and don't want to have to get rid of it. Any ideas please?
Hi there,

Just to let you know that brake master cylinder 47201-17250 is discontinued and no longer available also it was quite expensive with retail price of £325.67

However you can still buy Brake Master Cylinder repair kit which is retails around £140 incl vat.

Also did you have any problems with the brakes before work has been carried out?

Hope this helps.

There are 3 different brake master cylinders for a Japanese market Rev3 Turbo:

47201-17230 - Non ABS.
47201-17250 - ABS.
47201-17240 - ABS and TRC.

http://japan-parts.eu/toyota/jp/1994/mr ... nder#47201

UK market NA for the same year is a different PN for non ABS and ABS (no TRC available).

The Japanese market NA's are the same PN for non ABS and ABS (again not TRC available):
http://japan-parts.eu/toyota/jp/1994/mr ... nder#47201

No idea what the difference is between the UK market ones and the Japanese ones.

Shouldn't be hard to source one though.
