Yes I agree.

Sometimes when swapping in these massive calipers which hold significantly more fluid then the OEM calipers they are replacing, air can get into the ABS system and the only way to get it out is to cycle the ABS pump while following the bleed procedure in a factory service manual. The only way to do this right is with a very expensive diagnostic scan tool that has the ability to cycle the ABS pump on command.

If that didn't happen with the swap, then bleed and re-bleed again until the soft pedal goes away...... there is a lot of air space to be filled with fluid with these Brembos.

Re: Brembo Brakes

Let me ask this, How many inches are you from the floor to the pedal when you apply the brakes. Maybe I'm OK... They bled the outside bleeder first then the inside. They hooked it up to a computer and cycle the ABS. I don't know, they don't feel soft actually it takes less pressure with my foot to stop... it's just the pedal seems to go down farther than before. I'm going in to my dealer Wednesday for an alignment, I will probably have them bleed them again... They said it could possible take 3 hours to bleed them. Does that sound right?

Re: Brembo Brakes

I could reinstall my oem brakes AND bleed them in less than 3 hours

After I got my calipers on, I did a gravity bleed on all 8 screws and refilled the MC as I went along.

Then I had a friend get in and do the brake pedal pressing while I hit all 8 bleeders under pressure to finish it off.

Easy. 1, 2, 3 done.

Re: Brembo Brakes

To me the brakes ar not soft. Just the pedal goes lower than before. Maybe it's just the way the Brembos are...Would bleeding them again possible raise the pedal?

Re: Brembo Brakes

My pedal is rock hard and is up very high, I used a vacuum bleeder and flushed all the fluid out. , sounds like air in there.
