    sounds like air in the system to me.......
    did you open the brake fluid reservoir (top off ) before winding back?

    Ok thanks for the replies.the pads were fitted correctly everything that need to move was doing so freely nothing siezed.ive done 80ish miles since changing the pads using the handbrake alot too to help bed them in the pedal is as hard as it shoul be and the brakes work fine but the pedal sinks to the floor when you hold it down im stumped?
