I have bled my brakes and the pedal travels maybe 2 inchs before gripping.
When I turn on the ignition the pedal goes to the floor.
I tried bleeding them again with the car running and they still go to the floor. Any ideas ??
I've always had good luck with vacuum bleeder pumps, but I still would rather bleed the traditional way. If you're pedal travel is excessive, there's still air in the lines so its time to rebleed. It would take me upwards of 4 tries to get a solid pedal with my X3.
Check for rusted backing plates on the front pads. I had some brake material that was separated from the backing plate and had the same symptom. I almost replaced the master cylinder (after bleeding all of the system) thinking that was the problem.
