I have always wondered if a C3 loses all of its brakes if one caliper suddenly starts leaking. A C3 master cylinder has two reservoirs but does it have two separate braking systems? Out of curiosity I opened my right front bleeder valve this morning just to see if my rear brakes would still work.

Yep, they did work but just barely. And when I disconnected the rear brake line from my master cylinder my front brakes still worked but just barely.

Even though they still work with a leaking caliper they won't work good enough during a panic stop. As long as you keep a considerable distance from the car in front of you you can make it home.
