Secma Qpod Club

Qpod Club - be part of the fun!

During a trip out today, enjoying the sunshine, Annie and I approached a T-junction, I braked and nothing happened so the handbrake came in very handy I can tell you.   Although frightened to death we came out of the incident in one piece. 

The problem proved to be the two studs holding the brake master cylinder which had sheared.  I have written to Cunningham’s (Sole Importer and Distributor representing SECMA in the UK) informing them of the incident and asked them to investigate and take action to make sure this problem doesn’t effect other QPod Sport owners (I’ll keep you posted).

In the meantime, please check your master cylinder mountings.

Hi Kevin,
I meant to ask you in my last post. Am I correct in thinking that to fix the failure, I have to get the 2 bolt heads cut off and to weld on 2 new bolts to the chassis so that the master cylinder can be refixed?
Kind regards.

Hi Bob, 

If the bolts are broken yes you would need to do that. The vehicles we have seen with this issue tend to have a broken bracket rather then the bolts. 

Is this the case with yours? 


Hi Kevin,

No, with mine both bolts have sheared leaving the bolt heads still welded to the brackets. Both brackets seem fine.

Thanks again for your assistance.
