Hi. Just recently bought the car but still looks new. Brakes are not releasing properly causing the brakes to drag and get hot. The brake pedal is also VERY sensitive. If you touch it while driving, it feels like you're making an emergency stop! After many days of searching for the problem, I unscrewed the master cylinder to give a 5mm gap from the booster. Tested the brakes and it releases properly like it should. I took off all the calipers and stripped to see if something is wrong, but they are good as new. Moving freely like they should. Changed the brake fluid and bled it a few times. Everything works perfect until I tighten the master cylinder, then it grabs the rotters with nobody even touching the pedal.
I read on the internet that some cars have an adjustable rod so you can shorten it a bit.
Can you tell me where can I adjust my rod? It looks fixed under the pedal so I don't think you can adjust it there. Is it possible that you can not adjust it or is there somehow a way to make it shorter?
