topred replied to topred's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks both of you for your suggestions and gracious offer. I was hoping since all I was doing was compressing the pistons I wouldn't introduce air into the system, but guess I was unsuccessful. Hopefully I can find the right kind of brake fluid on a Sunday (my car is my daily driver). Been a very long time since I've bleed the brakes, but I think I can handle it. Bob
topred posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I replaced the front brake pads today on my 1999 996 cab. Generally it went well - replaced the OEM pads with Mintex and also replaced sensors. Didn't open the bleeder valves, but removed excess fluid from the reservoir. After I was done I pumped the brake pedal several times (engine off) and it seemed to come up to pressure. The problem is now the brake pedal feels mushy. Before the pad change, the pedal traveled only a short distance before encountering firm pressure. Now the pedal seems to travel at least twice as far before engaging. The brakes work, but they just don't feel normal. Any suggestions how to fix this? Thanks. Bob
