Who Else has Soft Spongy Brakes on their MB?
I'd like to do a survey on Sprinter brakes. Please only answer if you are having an issue!!! That way we can keep this short and concise and easily keep track of how many folks have problems!!!
I have seen other posts regarding this, most recently by MiataHoarder, but don't know who else on this forum has had problems.
I have had the booster and master cylinder replaced (under warranty on my 2014 24R with 5000 miles), but the brakes are still spongy and the pedal will travel all the way to the floor when depressed. I really have to stand on them hard when stopping.
I called the 800-FOR-MERCEDES number yesterday. They had a tech guy call me right back to discuss the problem, but they are unfamiliar with any issues that people are having with the brakes. I told him I see posts about soft brakes here and other Sprinter forums, so it's not just me. He said he would contact the engineering department and he also made an appointment for me (AGAIN) at the nearest service center 100 miles away.
If you have a problem with your brakes, just reply "YES" back to this post, then call the 800-FOR MERCEDES number with your VIN handy.
Again, please only those with a brake issue reply "YES" to this post so we can find out how many Sprinter owners on this relatively small forum have brake problems.
THANKS! And don't forget to call Mercedes hotline if you do have a problem! I believe I used "4" on the robo menu to get through to the person that helped me.
