    Brake pads (front and rear) replacement issues: Spongy pedal

    Hi all,

    Like many of us, time has come to replace the brake pads on my 2015 Evoque Pure, and I've chosen the Akebono ceramic pads, EURO version.
    I did follow many tutorials on how to replace the pads (like this one https://www.evoqueforums.net/forum/ev...er-evoque.html) and all went fine. I double-checked that the fron pads were correctly installed, with the back pads correctly clipped into the piston.

    The problem is that where I had a very safe and conforting braje pedal feeling with the old pads, I have now a spongy and bad feeling when I press the brake pedal.
    I have to say that I did not bleed the brake fluid and I did not bend or do any damage to brake lines. I used a towel on the brake fluid tank to get the overflowing liquid after pushing on the pistons.


    What did I miss and did you experience the same with Akebono ? Do I have to remove/recheck every pads ?

    Thanks for your help, I'm really worry to drive the car or even worse to let my wife driving it.

    doesn't a "spongy" feeling, usually mean air in the brake lines?
