    Default Recent Pad Change

    About a month ago I had the pads changed by a local tyre place we use at work, they also supply and fit brakes. Anyway since having them fitted I am sure I get a very slight knock noise when coming to a stop, and they other bit is I feel the pedal is still a bit spongy and if I pump it it feels right but if I keep my foot pressed on the pedal then it slowly goes to the bottom, does this happen on anybody else's or does it seem like there may be an air leak??

    I know it's not explained in the best terms

    That's fine then. Pedal 'sinking' when engine is running is normal.

    Knocking, not sure. I'm sure Mark will have some suggestions.

    Which pads BTW? - front or back?
