Re my last posting about brake pads wearing uneven.
I purchased new pads and installed them tonight only to find I now have
excessive pedal travel. It's to the point where the pedal is all the way to
I can't have air in the system as I did not break the lines, I just eased
the cylinders back.
Any ideas why the now excessive brake pedal travel?
I am thinking maybe the new pads need to be broken in or maybe the drum
brakes need adjusting? I have never encountered this problem before doing
brakes. Worse case I am thinking I have screwed up the master cylinder by
pumping the brake pedal gently to seat the new pads.
Any help appreciated before I give up and take it to a brake shop.
ps If you see a silver malibu in your rear view mirror tommorrow, no sudden
braking please....... ;-)
