    WOW TELL HIM THANKS ALOT. LOL TELL HIM HE HAS SOMETHING WRONG AND TO RECHECK IT AND BLEED THE BRAKE SYSTEM STARTING WITH THE RT REAR AND FINISHING IN THE LEFT FRT. SOUNDS LIKE HE EITHER DIDN'T DO IT RT OR THERE IS STILL AIR IN THE SYSTEM. BTW PAY YOUR INSURANCE BILL. LOL

    No you havent offended me lol I have a pretty good sense of humor. And I finally get why you told me to pay my insurance bill... Luckily I have a second car that is in good shape! But I love this little car and otherwise it runs great I just need detailed instructions to give him so he doesnt ruin anything else lol. But like I said the brakes have been this way for a little over two month!! Dont you think the air wouldve passed through by now?? And another thing is when I do hit the brakes there is a loud knocking sound and the car pulls to the left..

    He needs to bleed the system. Purge all the air out of the brake lines. Start from the furthest away wheel from the brake master cylinder and work your way up. Example first do pass rear, then driver rear then pass front and last do the driver front. Be sure to add fluid as you're bleeding each caliper and add fluid (dot 3) after you're done.
