EX35 brake bleeding ?

Discussion of Infiniti's amazing (and underrated) sport-luxury crossovers, the EX35 and EX37. For 2014, the EX series will be renamed QX50, in line with Ininfiit's new naming conventions.

EX35 brake bleeding ?

Postby ferrythecat » Sun Jan 26, 2020 4:22 pm

I have probably done 50 brake changes in my life, but I can't get a satisfactory pedal firmness on my '09 EX35.

Pads and rotor all around, both rubber lines in the front all replaced. Pressure bleed and still feels soft to me.

Is their a hidden bleeder someplace?
Should I replace the 2 rear rubber lines?

It isn't unacceptable, but it should be better. I'm hard-pressed to believe the master cylinder is to blame.

Both Infinitis I've owned ('04 G35 and '08 EX35) have relatively soft brake pedals even after bleeding. I think it's just how they're set up.
