Re: Play in transfer case lever with bad rattling

Thanks for the good information! In my special case there is a different outcoming: with very high probability the brakes are the culprits. When applying the brakes the rattling does stop - as I only brake rarely on the dust roads I am usually driving on, I didn‘t realize that before. I am missing t...

Re: Brake pedal feel different on first brake application

Ok, finally problem solved: it was air in the system.
During the service they couldn't find anything strange at the discs or pads and after bleeding the system today the brake works much earlier with a strong pedal feel.

Thanks for all your hints!

Re: Brake pedal feel different on first brake application

It's a bit hard to evaluate for me: when standing the pedal feel is and keep different to the feel when driving. When driving I got a veeeerrryyyy slight intermittent screaching like a slight inbalance on one disc. And I got the feeling that if I first press the brake pedal after driving some meters...

Re: Brake pedal feel different on first brake application

That‘s an interesting point! I think -but have to ask to be sure- that the car got fredh brake fluid 1 or 2 years ago. I just tested after driving with engine off: on first press I could depress the pedal with little force to lets say 30% of travel. The second pressing was much firmer and I had much...

Re: Brake pedal feel different on first brake application

Hi Andriess,

I‘ll try to work it out according to your hints.
What I can say already is that the reservoir is just a tad above max, so there shouldn‘t be any leak.

Thanks for the update regarding the bleed: I‘ll pass that through to my workshop.

Re: Brake pedal feel different on first brake application

Thanks Tinus!
The brake pads actually have been changed not too long ago.
I‘ll ask the shop to bleed the calipers.
The fluid has been renewed also about a year ago, the level stays high, so there shouldn‘t be any leak.

I‘ll keep you posted, the car goes to the shop in a week.
