4342hard brake pedal w/engaged brakes
- Apr 16, 2006Hello all,
My '88 535is has a braking problem when in heavy stop and go traffic (the
worst time for it). The brake pedal will get really hard about an inch or so
into braking, the pedal will then only engage from that position down. Also,
when this happens the brakes themselves are engaged after I have stop
putting pressure on the pedal. At first, they aren't that engaged but as
they stay engaged they really heat up and then engage even more. To the
point that I can barely get over 20mph... (when this started to happen, I
was in a traffic filled tunnel, and had to get out before I could pull over
I am having my mechanic take a look at it, as I don't have the time to
tinker at the moment.
Has anyone else had a similar problem? If so, what was the culprit? It
would help to have a starting point, if this is a common problem.
Thank you for what help you can give,
