    Hello Friends, I am hearing an air leak kind of sound while pushing the brake pedal. The sound is audible somewhere near the brake pedal.

    Symptom is, I start the engine, leave the car idle and push the brake pedal. A clearly audible air leak sound. I double confirmed it's not the return spring noise or any sound caused by the mechanical movement. It's clearly some kind of air leak sound. I cross searched the forum and found it to be normal in many other FIATs. But, I don't remember hearing any such noise while pushing the brake pedal before.

    Embedding the video clip capturing the brake pedal noise. The noise what you hear when I push the pedal is the air leak sound.


    Is it something due to air bubbles in the brake line or something major I should be concerned about? The braking action seems to be fine, still I need to take the car out and test for any abnormalities.

    Thanks buddy. But, I don't remember hearing it before or it might be that I got my hearing senses sharpened recently :D

    Having said that it's normal for many, can someone throw light on the reason behind that sound?

    I think the sound has been amplified by the recorder??

    Never heard this loud a sound ever.

    You are correct. The sound got amplified. I didn't notice any difference while driving unless you listen keenly when the car is stationary.

    MODS: Kind request to close the thread as there is no issue as such to discuss any further.
