Deore 535 disc brakes lost power
#1
Ok so my disc brakes lost braking power, break lever is loose, no stiffnes at all, even when brake pads (they ar brand new) touch rotor. So im thinking that i need to add bit oil in reservoir tank. But i'm not completely sure. If i'm correct do i necessarily need to use shimano mineral oil, or something like LHM plus will do the job without any side effects ?

Add what it runs on, the Shimano Mineral Oil. But first consult this link below. Here is the direct link to the PDF manual.
