Hi, I did replace master cylinder booster, and every thing is okay, but I noticed the brake become more sensitive ie (i mean less pedal pressure to engage brake)
and the feeling of pedal pressure changes. I measured the pedal free play and was 6 mm, I think the the free play was more than this before car repair, and because of this I noticed different feeling when press pedal for brake.
Can you tell me the normal free play height for my car? And tell me step by step with pictures or diagrams that show how to adjust the height of free play?
Do you
have the same problem?

Looks like the 6mm is at the large end of the scale. I attached the process to adjust it but I think I know what happened. More then likely you had a low pedal and just got use to it being a low pedal and not having full stopping power. Now that you have fixed that, the pedal seems really high and more sensitive. However, based on these things that you are telling us, I suspect you have a properly operating vehicle now and before the pedal was not correct.

Review this material and let me know what you find. Thanks
