I would change front discs and pads and replace the brake fluid in the car and then test then. If it was a master cylinder it would creep to the floor on light pressure.
Thanks Rentech. I have never heard of brake assist working like that before.
I am testing it whilst stationary,not moving, but if it's a 'magnet' as you say, then it will stick anyway?

What about the sinking to the carpet bit, surely that's not right even with worn discs?
