Zetec S Foot Brake Pedal Travel

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

Does anyone else have a problem with the foot brake having excessive pedal travel before the brakes do anything?

Brakes work fine just the amount of travel in pedal.

Any ideas?? brakes have been adjusted and inspected and all ok..

Same here, the pedal moves quite a bit before any proper braking kicks in.

Well at least its not just my car then. Makes me feel a bit better about it. Would be nice to find a cure for it though..

Mine used to be like yours untill i had the front tyres changed. The garage never said anything, but i'm 100% sure they done something because they go straight on with very little pushing. After i left the garage, first time i used the brakes and it felt like an emergency stop! But i've soon got used to it, and have had no problems since.
