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!

Changed pads & rotors on front of my 2013 Volvo XC70, now pedal goes to the floor. Tried bleeding no better. Did not pinch off hose or open bleeder before pushing in pistons


The vehicle has anti-lock brakes. The lines have to be bled using a pressurized brake fluid bleeder which sends brake fluid from the caliper piston bleed valve up to the reservoir. Pushing in the pistons is standard practice, but you have introduced air somewhere. Pressing the brake pedal 3 or 4 times should have brought the pads down to the rotors. Did you do that?

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.

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

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.
