Exclamation Help????

I recently did I brake job on my 07 gti and after doing everything I knew to do properly I still donít have any pressure in my brake pedal until it almost gets to the floor. Iíve went around and tried to find out what happened to cause this and every video Iíve seen no one replaces the brake fluid like I did (which I thought you always supposed to do.) so I need help to fix this this. Iím what you call a novice when it comes to cars and this is my first project/daily car, so Iím trying to learn and grow from this. Any help would be awesome cause I donít feel comfortable enough to drive the car the way it is now and being in a pretty busy city means being able to stop when I need to is a most.

Did you bleed the lines? Sounds like you have not done that yet. Need to bleed air out of lines. Look up the many youtube vids on bleeding brakes on VW MKV
