Re: Still major issues with brakes

Servo or vacuum issues would normally cause a hard pedal with little stopping power.
Master cylinder, air in system or leaks would normally cause a soft pedal and excessive travel.
Soft pedal and excessive travel can also be down to handbrake adjustment.
Stuck pads/shoes can create both hard pedal and excessive travel with little stopping power.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
