Master cylinder problems 560SEL

Got another issue. Had new tire put on my 560 and after driving for a few km's found that the brakes were spongy and going down to the floor. When the tires were installed, the brakes were looked at and no leaks of any kind were found. Today as I was driving the brake light now comes on intermitently and the pedal is still spongy. Added some fluid to the resevour but still the same. The car stops and the antilock works but I'm concerned it may be the master. Has anyone had this experience or have any idea how to verify if it is the master. I live in a place where there is no mercedes mechanics, so it's difficult to get a diagnosis. Also, if anyone knows how much a new or rebuilt master costs and where I might find one in south central ontario. Thanks in advance.
