I have changed the pads, the master cilynder, the dot 5 brake fluid and I am sure that that there is no leaks or air in the system. But, I feel a very spongy pedal that travels a lot before the brake acts. The effort to brake increased just a little bit. However, once in the end, the brake stop power is still good.
I also own an E class 1994 420 and the brake feel is much better. It seems that for my clk 430 the brake is lazy to start acting and too spongy and unprecise.
Do you think it could be related to internal diaphragm problem in the power booster? I have heard that for some power boosters, before the brake become trully hard and difficult, it could be spongy and quiet lazy once only one internal part is damage. For a common person who not rum the car daily it could be almost normal.
What do you advise me. I really feel that the brake is not normal. Thank you a lot.
have the same problem?
