‘05 mini cooper S.

Brake pedal has been going to the floor for no good damn reason. No leaks anywhere. Bled the brakes several times. Replaced master cylinder and bled again. No air coming out. Not a bubble.


There is talk online of an ABS pump that might have air, but I don’t think I have one of those. Should be up top by firewall and I can’t remember seeing it.

Pretending I am blind in 3 eyes and I do have it. How do I bleed it? There is talk of going to dealer and having them open valves and solenoids. That isn’t an easy task. Car has no plates on it and I don’t want it to. I don’t want to tow it to dealer. I just want to have a firm pedal.


Any ideas?

P.S. Dashboard talks about ASC, not DSC. I think and I am not 100% sure on it, but I think it means I do not have ABS?


P.P.S brakes were bled by pedal pushing method. No pressure or vacuum gizmos were used.
