Last weekend i decided it was time to replace my brake pads. I went
around to all the wheels and replaced the pads, as well as the disks
on the front wheels. This operation is something I’ve done a number of
times and on a number of different vehicles, so it’s not new to me.
However, when I got back into my car, thinking the brakes would be
great, I was disappointed to find that the brakes were much worse than
before. It felt as if I would not get any braking power until about an
inch from the floor. Naturally, I assumed there was air in the brake
lines. I than proceeded to go around to the car bleeding the brakes
(the old fashioned way).
After doing this twice, I was again disappointed to find that the
brakes had not improved even the slightest. Looking around on the web
I figured that the failure must be the master brake cylinder. I went
out and bought a rebuild kit and got that all done. When I had
everything bolted down and plenty of brake fluid (the correct kind for
my car) in the resevoir, I was AGAIN disappointed to find the brakes
were worse. It felt as if there was absolutely no resistance, other
than the spring, on the pedal.
SO... after such a long description of the problem... I am wondering
if anyone out there has had such a trouble, and if so, how they went
about fixing it. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!
