Q: Left front wheel does not brake. Checked pads. All OK. No fluid coming to wheel on 2008 Hyundai Tucson

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Loosened brake pipes on this wheel and see no fluid coming thru when pressing brake pedal. Can this be the ABS?

Loosen the brake line from the top end of the hose, if you get fluid there, replace the brake hose.
Done that as well. After checking all possible faults, I finally came to the conclusion that it must be the ABS pump (which I didn't want to do in the first place because of its astronomical price tag of R29 000!) Managed to get one via 'Spares4You' at R3 000. Problem sorted. With my braking problem experience that lasted about 2 month I can tell you there are many sharks out there who want to replace everything except the ABS and charge you for it! I've had repair shops diagnosing its the brake pads, then the master cylinder. All at great cost. This includes Agents. But thanks guys. Braking on all 4 right now.
