Re: brake and clutch pedal problem (SC corrado)

I'm not sure what your problem is. first off do you have ABS? Are your brakes locking up or just not getting enough pressure and the pedal goes to the floor?
When you did the clutch install did you lube the throwout bearing sleeve?
Did you lube the Slave cylinder's finger that engages the clutch assembly in the bell housing?
did you bleed the Clutch master cylinder first and then the slave and then repeat the process a few times?
Have you ever changed out all of the brake fluid? Have you ever bled the brakes to remove air and the dirty fluid?
what condition are your pads and rotors, ie how long have they been on the car and are they wearing evenly?
