Break thingy on my rear line

Hi

Can anyone tell me what this is?



It's plumbed into my rear break line and there are a couple of spade connectors on the top of it.

Yup. Definately one of those. Shame people always install them with the switch above the brake line. Means you get a little air bubble under the switch which no amount of bleeding will get rid of. Much better to install them with the switch underneath the lines!!

Ah, this could be the problem I'm having. I've got air somewhere in the system which I can't get out. I'll try turing it upside down then bleeding the rears again.

I turned the switch over then re-bled the rears and they're working fine again now.

Thanks for the tip BenB.
