Re: Pedal feel after changine rear brakes!

No nibs Lag and yes I undid the hand brake cable before taking the pads out, disc off etc!

I have bled the system and although there was the rock hard feel to the pedal as always, as soon as I finished bleeding and topped up the reservoir the pedal feels spongy again? I'm confused, really confused!

The reservoir never dipped below min whilst changing the discs and pads and again when bleeding!

The brakes work fine, it's just the feel of the pedal. I gave it a good few stamps earlier and it stopped ok....maybe I'm just too used to the hardness of my brake son the Subaru Still unsure about the phss sort of sound from the pedal area [master cylinder I assume] when depressing the pedal???

I shall keep an eye on the reservoir to see if there's any change in the levels over the next few day etc!

Currently in scatz's garage:
2004 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B, a 2013 2.0 TDCi Titanium X Sport S-Max and a 2001 Honda NSR125R
