Question about Mazda Protege
Just had brake pads installed. now I have to start stepping on brake pedal way ahead of time for the car to stop.
Check to make sure you have a decent amount of brake fluid and if that doesn't work ask whoever installed your brake pads ask them if they
bleeded your break lines when they were done

You have to remove the air trapped in the hydraulic system. Look at change of brakefluid in a repair handbook and perform it as described.
Useful to change the brakefluid at least once every five years anyway.

Testimonial: "Saved me time, money and most importantly, perhaps my life!"
When you press on the brake? Have your brake vacuum assist checked. It,s that bigspaceship looking thing between the brake master cylinder an firewall. good luck and be safe.

SOURCE: my brake pedal is hard
i guess your brake booster is the problem. try this.... engine not running just pump the brake at least 25 times at the 25 count,just keep your feet on the brake pedal and start the engine. if the brake pedal won't go down even a little... your brake booster is gone. or something with the vacuum.
