Re: excessive brake pedel travel after discs and pads fitted

or alternatively if you have the tool or know a mechanic is to back pressure the brake system via the reservior to turn the seals back to how they should be.

Im guessing you didnt take off the reservior cap whilst doing the brakes? i made this mistake once and had to call my mobile mechanic who did just what i suggested and all was well again. It may work for you or you may well indeed have to replace the master cylinder.

Good luck
