EF W/ ABS, long pedal after pad change
I changed my front pads about a month ago, and since then, the pedal seems to go down further than before. It still has the same braking capacity as before, its just the pedal goes down further before the brakes take affect.
On someones advise, I cracked the bleeder while I pushed the piston back, I was told this can damage the ABS module if you try to force fluid back into it. I've tried bleeding both sides a few times, and t doesnt go away. The pedal doesn't get harder when you pump it, and the ABS still seems to work fine.
Any ideas? It was suggested that there could be air in the ABS module. Can you bleed these? The other thing t could be is just the cheap pads, they're Bendix Excel, cheapies...
