The brake pedal in my wifes Caravan "clicks" and a very slight drop is
felt when braking. The hydraulic system is solid and I replaced pads
and shoes recently. I have owned the car since new and have have
become intimately familiar with the braking system over time having
replaced 3 rotors, both calipers and both wheel cylinders along with
pads 4 times in the cars 75K mile life. Could this actually be the
bushing at the brake pedal pivot? Master cylinder seems unlikely since
the pedal inital feel is good.
Any insight would be appreciated, I rarely drive this car but I need
to take it 3K on vacation this summer and this thing will drive me
crazy not to mention the safety concern.
Thanks in advance,
Thanks for responding Glenn. No this is something that developed in
the last year. In addition to the noise you can feel the pedal drop
although only slightly. The intermintent nature of it adds to the
confusion although it occurs most of the time. I notice that if reach
under the dash and operate the pedal while using my free hand to feel
where the noise and motion is coming from, it feels more noticable at
where the pushrod enters into the booster. Could the booster be going?
I performed the simple tests for a leaking booster and everything
Does anyone know if there is a bushing at the attachment to the
pushrod and pedal?
Anything is possible. Like I said without hearing the noise it is hard to
say what you have going on. The only bushing I no of would be the bushing
that the brake booster rod fits into.
