How do I adj my rear brake? When I push down with my foot it feels spongy. There is no air in the lines. Is there an ADJ? Thanks Buzz

I had the same problem for 28000 miles. Even took it back to the dealer for bleeding. When I was doing the brake fluid flush this winter I found much air in the anti-dive. Are you sure you bled it also?

If it is a 1800, it has anti dive. A spongy pedal means you have air in the system.

All 1800 have anti dive as far as I know and even if you disabled it, it still has the lines going to it that could have air in it. you need to bleed it by the book.

Has to be air as there are no adjustments on disc brakes, not even on cars discounting the emergency cable.

Your not confusing anti dive with ABS (Anti lock Brake System) are you?
