    Spongey brake pedal inca van

    afternoon all,

    i have recently bought a seat inca van 1996 'p'. the brake pedal seems very spongey, iv bled the system and done all i can to rectify it. the brakes do work but the pedal goes along way down. the pads and disc are quite worn and to be honest could do with replacing, could this be a possible cause? any help is very much appreciated guys

    I've driven a couple of these that were new and the pedal was spongey on them, I think its one of the traits of the vehicle.

    No worries.
    I recall that the old VW caddy trucks were the same, brakes that hardly worked at all from new due to poor conversion from left to right hand drive.
