Hey,

Well after almost 2 months my girlfriends car got finally back from the body shop. Anywho. when we dropped off the car the brakes were working fine. But we got it back and they were really spongy. So i bled the brakes and it turned out alot of air was in the lines. Anywho. The brakes feel about 30-50 percent better but not 100 percent. The brake pedal still feels soft and it seems we have bled all of the air out. Anyone know whats up with that. The brake pedal still feels a bit weak. thanks.

Also, i brought it to the mechanic here at work and he bled the brakes also and still a weak pedal. thanks again

What kind of work did you have done that they bled your brakes?

If you had brake pads replaced, they may not have reset the pistons correctly or a boot was torn. Do you have any brake fluid puddles near your tires or anywhere under the car?

You may want to put the car on stands and check for holes/seeps in the brake lines as well.
