It sounds like you need to bleed the brakes.

take it apart, and do it right.

screw the parking brake thingies back in, then properly bleed the entire system.

1. Go to an auto store and buy self-bleed tool. there are two kinds
a. ($7) a small tank with a one-way valve - you hook it up to the bleeder valve, open the valve some, and press the pedal yourself.
b. ($30) a hand pump that pulls the fluid out.
Both should have instructions.


2. Go to a search engine and type "how to bleed brakes, " and press Go.

DO NOT FORGET - Start at the brake that has the longest line to the master cylinder: usually the right rear.

Subies have a different order

Front left
Rear Right
Front right
Rear Left

That is straight out of the 87 Factory service manual.

Question on brake feel on the EA81 wagons. I've owned two of them, and both had brakes that you had to give one pump before putting your foot into it. Sort of like it wasn't completly bled. But I did bleed both according to the manual. Has anyone else experienced this? My EA82 wagons don't feel this way -- firm pedal on the first push.
