This sounds to me like classic air in the lines. It is also possible that you are low on brake fluid, but having just bled the brakes this seems unlikely. I think what needs to be done is a re-bleed, ensuring the brake fluid level does not get too low in the process, and then you need to ensure that the bleed nipples and the brake lines are sealed properly. Good luck!

Go under the car and you will see the cables that go to the parking brakes, there is a rod and nut that is the adjuster.

Vibration when car slowing down to stop


Your brake rotors have become warped, probably the front. Visit a brake shop as they need machining or replacement.

I have a 2006 Volvo XC 90 and need brakes, I have been told that I will need to replace the rotors, is this true? and why?


Did they tell you why you need to replace the rotors? Sometimes you need to do this if you waited to long to change the brake pads and you have metal against mnetal and it warps the brake rotor. I would recommend going to get another company to look at the brakes to make sure that you are not being sold a bill of goods you don't need. I hope that this helps! I have the same car and have been driving Volvo's for years. Do you know when you changed out the front brakes last? That may help you some to know but if you do a lot of stop and go driving, you would need to change the brake pads more frequently. Usually the front brakes go sooner than the rear but I am not sure if this is true with awd. But this is my first awd too.

That sounds like the "Porportioning valve" is defective.
You may want to go to your local library and check out a Chilton's, or some other repair manual for the "how to" to fix yourself or take it to a tech you can trust.

check balance of tires; if ok, have rotors refinished or replaced; most likely warped rotors if you can feel it in the brake pedal when braking

ABS causing vibration in o4 f-150??


Since the rotor isn't warped. Do you have grooves in the rotor? Are the pads evenly worn? You a bad front 4X4 C/V shaft will also cause this reaction.
I would just unplug the ABS fuse and it will bypass the system to regular old-fashioned brakes.

Brakes bad even after replacing pads/rotors


You need to replace the master cylinder. If all else is good and the petal goes to the floor, that's really about all it could be.
