Brake Question ? Any Input Would Help Thanks

2009 - Brake pedal pops/snaps when pressing down almost feels gritty. Makes snaping/popping nosie when coming back up. Also pedal does not come all the way back up and when you hit a big bump in road the brake pedal makes a snapping noise and releases all the way back up. Brake fluid drops 1/4 every month. Lubraicant dripping behind brake pedal. Hydroboost replaced about seven months ago. Dealer said the noise with the brake pedal snapping is normal and normal for lubraicant to drip every now and then behind pedal in truck. This doesn't sound right at all to me. Any suggestions or has anyone had this problem?

I would say that is not normal. If you're losing that much brake fluid, there is definitely an issue and the dealer should really be ashamed of not addressing it especially if they did the work. That is a definite safety hazard as it could cause a braking system failure (no brakes).

Bring it in and get it repaired now.

It may be your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.

Wow I can't believe they said it's normal for it to drip brake fluid into the cab lol, it shouldn't be normal for a vehicle to drip any fluid unless it's condensation from your tailpipe or AC condensate line.

You need to bring your truck to a different dealership and you need to call Ford and let them know about the comments!
