Question about 2003 Ford ZX2
Changed rear brakes on a 2003 Frod escort zx2 and the pedal is spongy. I have bled the entire system three times and used about half a quart of brake fluid. still no change in the pedal. Now the passenger rear and driver front brakes are looked up.
Loosen of the hand-brake adjustment and press the brake pedal a few times to self adjust the rear brakes.
Re-tighten the handbrake adj last.
Front brake sounds like a seized caliper,If possible remove caliper and clean and lubricate the piston.
This may work but replacement caliper may be the only other solution.Make sure the caliper slides are also clean and lubricated and the brake pads are in good order.(TRY THIS FIRST)
Also new brake shoes can make the pedal feel spongy for a couple of hundred miles until they have been run in.
