Changed brake pads and used a c-clamp to retract the piston in the caliper, never bled the brakes and my wife was driving the van 2 weeks later, applied the brakes and the peddle went right to the floor,...


Bleed the brakes, but it will probably still feel spongy. When you compress the Caliper you need to open the bleeder valve to release the pressure. It sounds like you busted the diaphragm in the proportioning valve. It is a costly mistake but one made alot now that more and more vehicles have anti-locking breaks. If bleeding and replacing the fluid do not help at all then I bet on the proportioning valve.

Hi there, I have a 2001 EC200 GG and I'm finding the front brake weak and spongey. Is it generally the stock brake line or the pads that are the main problem, or something else? Cheers,


Hi, spongy brakes is usually from air in the system, only in really old bikes and poor quality brake lines will cause spongy breaks where the brake lines expand instead of full pressure being applied to the brake pads, very rarely will the brake pads cause spongy brakes (unless over heated), once you get rid of the sponginess you will get strong braking. Bleed your front brake system taking care not to let the master cylinder run out of fluid, this is the easiest and cheapest start, once all the air is out then you can work your way through, another good way of testing your braking system, but you need to be very careful doing this and make sure your brake lines are not hard or brittle, you can squeeze the brake line at certain spots (using a pair of brake line pliers), eg. squeeze after the master cylinder. if brakes spongy than your master cylinder needs attention, if brakes hard than your problem is further down the line, calipers etc. Hope this helps.

Just changed front brake pads and still feels like brakes go to the floor. What is wrong?


check that fluid level is ok, by changing pad and opening calipers you may have lost fluid our of resovoir.

if your discs where not changed or skimmed at the same time you will have ridges, that do not match to the smooth pads, when you drive for a few miles eventually the pads will wear down and form the shape of the discs.

if they continue to be soft, bleed the fluid to make sure there is no air in it, if the brakes are still soft after this you should replace the brake fluid completely if it has not been done for a while as brake fluids absorbes moisture and that makes the brakes feel spongy or soft.


i hope this was useful.

2003 rav 4, just replaced front calipers and pads, after bleeding the line,peddle was spongie, bled all four lines, peddle still spongie, do I need the engine running to properly bleed the lines, and since...


I would bleed the rears too especially if the brake fluid reservoir drained empty. Also you may need to drive the vehicle to seat the brake pads. Check and see how the pedal feels initially before you road test to make sure you don't need to pump the brakes in order to stop. if you do then re bleed all four wheels.If you don't have to pump the pedal and it just feels spongy then try going around the block a few times and see if the pedal stiffens up after the pads have seated.

Replaced brake pads, rotars and callipars and brakes feel spongey. did bleed all 4 callipars til fluid came out and replaced brake fluid in master cylinder, still spongey can't figure it out.


U need the special anti-lock brake (ABS) bleeder adapter to get the air out of the ABS hydraulic control unit, that is why the spongy feel the system is no completely bled of air unless you hook up the tool that holds the hydraulic control valves open for bleeding

LOW BRAKE PEDAL ON 4 WHEEL DISK BRAKES


Check the pads/rotors to see if they need to be replaced.
Check the brake fluid level. If low it could mean the pads/rotors need to be replaced. If replacing also replace the brake fluid.
Two years probably means you need a brake job.

Otherwise you may have air in the brake lines which you can bleed off.

Brake lite on console comes on/off. fluid levels look good. brakes get spongy go to floor, but pump them up and they work and light goes off.


It's either fluid in the master cylinder leaking by the piston, or it's wheel cylinders/calipers leaking. You should take it to a shop, pronto!!
