2001 320slk

I just replaced my brake rotors and pads but now have a soft spongy pedal which will go to the stop. I have vacum bled the brakes but just didnt seem to help at all.Does this require a pressure pot. Any suggestions?? Thx Mike

Because you have emptied the system you will have to use a pressurised bleeding system.
There are many on the market which basically involve a pressure vessel connected to a cap that fits the master cylinder. The vessel is filled with brake fluid and pressurised to about 2bar or 30 -40 Psi. The brake lines are then bled in turn until the fluid runs clean and with no air.
