Things can only get better

by Robs-se » Sat Sep 18, 2010 8:48 pm

After replacing the rear calipres, brakes were bled as as they were still a bit spongey re-bled all the brakes again today and still they are sponge like. There is also a popping sound every so often from the rear passenger side when pressing the pedal. Dont know what that is. I do get pressure to the pedal if it is pressed once before using properly.
Think i'm going to replace the master cylinder and hope this sorts it out. B*gger Calibras :axed:

I would try a pressure bleeder first, you can get those that use the tyre pressure they work quite well
