First off, tell us which brakes u did, and 2nd, do u mean pedal feels spongy or it goes straight to the floor?

If u did rear brakes and oil came out of the brake cylinders, then u need to bleed the system.

2nd cause, maybe u broke a brake line. make sure ur brake fluid is full and pump the pedal quite a few times, then recheck fluid level.

There is no rear brake adjustment valve, it's a manual ABS system that works terribly bad, and no, u do not get most of ur brake feel from rear brakes. Front brakes are 70% and rear 30% on average.


Brakes are a serious thing, could get someone killed for god's sakes.

Did you change the front, back or both. if it was just the front then you need to put new back brakes in because that's were most of your brake pedal feel comes from. if it was both i would start looking at your brake system to see were the rear brake adjustment valve is and then start fiddling with it till it feels better.

Hi: I have a 1991 F350 diesel IDI dually; I just had work done on the back breaks because the back breaks locked up on it. New breaks, new drums, and new bearings. Now when trying to stop when going...

Hi sounds like your front rotors are warped. Do you feel it on one side or both? Your brake booster may not working properly or doesn't get enough vacuum. That make the brakes drag a little bit and in a long run will make the rotor warpe. Check front callipers if they not seized first , mesure vacuum. If it's ok you have to replace front rotors and pads

What tools do you need for changing a front wheel bearing on a mk3 golf

i used a hammer, adjustable spanner and a screwdriver and remeber the copper grease, make sure its lubricated properly while you've got the chance. its quite an easy job on the golf, but just take your time as i've heard people rushing it and not tightening something properly.

1994 Volkswagen MK1 golf knocking noise

Very simple.... I had this problem and it drove me Crazy.... your gearbox engine mount is gone. When you look at it it will look fine but when under load it moves. creating the knocking noise..

Use a crowbar (Very carefully) to move the engine to check.
