Most likely you have air in your brake lines. You must bleed the air out of them. Hook small clear tube to brake bleeding nipple, the other end of the tube into a clear container filled with enough brake fluid to cover end of tube. Fill brake fluid reservior. Loosen lock nut and cinch hand tight. Start car, press brake pedal. While someone holds brake pedal depressed, open lock nut. If you are doing it right, you will see brake fluid in the tube. Tighten lock nut. Have person release pedal then press pedal again. Loosen nut and watch for bubbles. Continue pressing pedal and loosening/tightening nut until there are no more bubbles seen in the tube. Also check brake fluid reservior to make sure it is full. As more air is bled out of the brake system, your reservior level will go down. Do rear brakes first then move to front. If it continues to happen, you have a leak in your brake system.

Hi can you help i have a vw golf gttdi on an 02 plate ive tried everything to get the brakes working but still when i turn the engine on they go soft


they will go soft a bit when engine runs as the servo is applying a lot more pressure its normal ,make sure you have removed the rear brake drums and adjusted the back brakes up manually and the pedal will go hard and the handbrake will tighten up as well

I need to replace the rear brake pads on my Polo 1.9 TDi


this is a turn in caliper, meaning that as you try to compress the piston, you also need to rotate it clockwise. you can buy tool for this at nearly any parts store, and is fairly inexpensive.

Soft pedal,30 percent brakage


Air in Brake system need to be bled or master-cylinder is BAD. Noise in rear can be alot of different things NOT related to Soft pedal for example bent backing plate,wheel bearing etc. I would recommend removing brake drum and take a look at brakes in the rear contact if you need more help. Good Luck. Thanks for using FIX-YA
