Hi, Hope someone can help.

I own a 97 E220 cabriolet. The brake pedal seems OK on startup and in park. Once I put it into drive and press the brake, the brake pedal stays in the pressed position and I have to manually push the pedal back up. I have checked the spring on the brake pedal and it seems ok. I have also checked the brake fluid level and none it being lost. Can anyone suggest what the problem could be- thanks in advance

Hi televison,

Thanks for the quick reply & the welcome - the diagram is very good but could you please tell me where is & how do I get to spring 83? Also, do you travel to Cardiff, South Wales for your mobile servicing service?

Hi television,

Just had another look at the diagram - its for the foot operated parking brake - my problem is with the normal brake pedal.

thanks in advance

The pedal was OK last year. Since then the car has been sat idle for roughly 4 months. Could something have seized in that time? The pedal does'nt seem tight on the shaft, I can quite easily move it with my hand.
