    Default Honda Civic 2004 - Brake Problem

    Salam Guys,
    I want to draw attention to all masters of autos to my problem regarding the braked in my honda civic 2004 (vti-Oriel-Prosmatec)
    The issue is that my brake paddle while applying brakes goes very low and this created a little confidence shake while driving stuntly, i have this issue since an year.
    What i heard is "k civic k brakes ishary py lagty hain paddle itna neechy jata hi nahi". even i tried few civics of the same model and found this issue with my car only.
    I have got my master cylinder and brakes pads checked and reported to be perfect.
    What could be the problem? pls advise and let me know if any sound mechanic who can work extraordinary on brakes of this car in Karachi.
    Thanks in anticipation.
    Waiting from u guys.

    sound like Air Bubbles in your system. Try bleeding the system.

    It could be two things.
    1. Your brake shoes need adjustment. But its not applicable if your car has all disks.

    2. Your brake oil has either water mixed with it or has air in the system. So you can try changing/bleeding the system.

    Firstly check the rubber brake pipes on the wheels (they get old and weak - sometimes they act like balloons) flush all brake fluid with a positive pressure machine, What I think is that the brake fluid was not changed in a long time (or ever) this causes the end of the master cylinder to rust out - in normal condition the pistons never go into that part of the master cylinder. When you bleed brakes on such a cylinder the pistons get there and the seals tear out which then can cause such behaviour in very mild cases.

    The only other bit that can cause low pedal is that either the booster actuator is not set with correct clearance or the master cylinder is not from a VTi.
