Re: Weird hissing from the brakes!

Thats right, the vacuum will allow the pedal to drop,
Your pedal will feel lower, until your brake pads bed in , normally from 20/200 depending how you drive and quality of pads,
The hissing is always there, (IT will get less as your pedal gets firmer, once your pads have bedded) but now you have picked up on it , it is 100 times louder than before, its the same when you hear a rattle from somewhere else, once you hear it , it is there until you sort it , but this one will go as soon as your pedal stops dropping as much
