Front brake Q. Feel after padd replacement? Did exhaustive search.
I searched for a couple of days concerning front brake pad replacement (via slk32.com's tutorial). I learned a lot but did not find much of an answer to my question:
Should the brake pedal feel any different after I change out the pads?
I did not bleed the brakes at any point, only took the cap off the fill and compressed the piston ala screwdriver leverage. But now I feel almost no difference in pedal feel, if anything if feels like I have to go down a little more than I did before, although it could be my imagination....
After 15 minute of light braking drive rotors are good and hot but no unusual or bad signs.
2001 SLK230 Wife's daily fair weather driver. 70,000 miles. Pads only, medium grade from Autozone. I know I could have gotten better off the 'net but she drives the car about 6 miles a day round trip, and drives like...well a lady.
Any input would be appreciated thank you!
