Brakes sticking?


Recommended Posts

Just bled my brakes for the 3rd time. Ever since I bled them the brake pedal does not always go back right away. I thought there may have been air in the lines but the 3rd time I had someone bleed them for me and it still happened. It does not happen all the time. I used Porsche brake fluid dot 4. Did I miss something?

Thanks

Do you notice any change in the brake fluid level like you may have a small leak somewhere, so as your level gets lower and lower, the pedal travels further and further?

If you sit with your foot on the brake, does it stay solid or do you feel it stop but then keep moving slowly towards the floor?

Take a look if the brake booster inside is free of water, when the drains are clogged up in the battery area rain and wash water will easily penetrate in the booster with a sticking brake pedal as result. Do a search, this problem is already discussed before.

I have not noticed any fluid loss. I put my foot on the brake, it stays solid. I pumped it several time same thing. It is just very slot to return..
