Brake pedal feel and recomendations
I have finally got my T Sport back after it being repaired for a month, and have got used to the Meriva hire car in the meantime.
I'm sure my brake pedal was like this before, but it feels as if there is an inch or two of pedal movement before anything happens, and then the bite is slow, but not like the pedal is spongy or anything like that.
This is nothing like the Meriva brakes, they were much more instantaneous!
The fluid was changed about a year ago, and the front pads are EBC greenstuffs that were done around the same time, could these be the reason for poor 'feel'?
What about the pedal travel before the braking, is this normal?
I think the pedal feel is just more progressive, I had a similar feeling when I had a c-max for a week.
I prefer it that way, gives you much more control
At least it is 'normal' to have the extra bit of travel before the brakes bite
try bleeding the brakes? might help..
