2000 Mercedes Benz ML320 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive 88000 miles
Hi, I just put pads on the front of my 2000 e320 Mercedes. Just like I have done on all cars for the last 20 years. I pulled the calipers, put a c clamp on, pushed the pistons back, installed the new pads.
I never opened the hydraulic lines.
The car's brake pedal went to the floor.
It worked fine before I put the pads on, I just had pad wear.
The only thing I can figure is that I pushed the hydraulic fluid backwards and blew something. Master cylinder? Now when I push on the brake pedal I hear a squishy sound like air. I think the booster is working though because when I pump the pedal the brakes pump up and work good. If I stay off the brakes for a few minutes the pedal will go to the floor again. I thought maybe it was a computer problem. I unhooked the battery for a few minutes and hooked it back up. No change. I had the abs and brake assist and baf lights flashing until I drove the car awhile then those lights went off but the pedal still goes to the floor. What the heck did I do wrong?
have the same problem?
