2000 Merc Sprinter 308cdi new master cylinder locks all

Resolved Question:

2000 Merc Sprinter 308cdi new master cylinder locks all brakes on

Hello

One other thing to try is to remove the master cylinder again and have your assistant push down on the brake pedal to expose the pushrod as it exits the servo

on the end of the pushrod there should be a little adjustment nut

try screwing this in a turn or two and put it all back together

this adjustment takes out free play at the pedal so its better to have a little bit of play rather than too tight
