Brakes are dragging or do not release completely. There is a lot of travel in the brake pedal and it does not seem to release completely. Brakes and pedal travel appear to improve with temperature, Could this be a problem with the master cylinder? The vehicle model is 525I.

If there is a lot of free play at the pedal, remove the master and check that the piston is not sticking pat way down the bore, if so fit a new master.
