FTE master cylinder arrived last night about 8:30 p.m., I had half a day off so I installed it after lunch. Did not bench bleed it, just used the power bleeder and pushed fresh fluid out to all four wheels.
Pedal feel is exactly like before (mushy) but it has always been mushy on that car. I may decide to try a different brake booster. What causes a mushy brake pedal other than air or bad MC? Time for new brake hoses at all four corners? At first, the pedal would sink, just like with the last MC. I drove it around the block and stopped hard a few times, and it got better. Doesn't sink now, brakes do their thing just fine, no pulling. I may get some more brake fluid and try bleeding it some more. I think I'll drive this car for a few days and see how it performs. ------------- Max Charleston SC _______________________________________ http://www.okiebenz.com To search list archives http://www.okiebenz.com/archive/ To Unsubscribe or change delivery options go to: http://mail.okiebenz.com/mailman/listinfo/mercedes_okiebenz.com
