Brake job!

(1990 Mercedes-Benz 300CE)
in Austin, TX on October 16, 2010

I replaced my pad on my car last night and tried to bleed the brake but nothing happens. After replacing the front pads I tried again. Now my brake pedal just goes to the floor. How do I get fluid back in the system? Did I miss a step?

If the pads are installed inmproperly they may be sitting to far from the brake rotor- try "pumping" the system up 5- 10 times 1st- if that does not fix it check the pad installation!! Good luck,Greg
