Does it get stuck like a mechanical lock? Like someone put a stop pin in it? Mine was doing that except at the top. Pretty scary when coming to a red light and the pedal won't move it turned out to be rear rubber brake hoses

My advice is not to drive it in the Baja's unsafe condition (to you and the people around you) until the cause ois found and repaired.
The dark side is a lonely place. It is true if your fist stays close nothing can fall out but nothing can go in. What is wrong? I know and many in the forum do but you have some old unresolved issues to atone for. Its time to look into your soul. Coming clean is good for your soul and your stopping abilities. Shocked

We have it in writing, Young man gets a job and a blonde for a girlfriend can sometimes forget his friends. Get a flashlight and see waht kinmd of junk is aroud the prdal assembly. If the sprink was broken it would not return all the time. I the pedal is actually dropping 1/2 way or all the way to the floor randomly the master cylinder may need replacing. This assumes you have enough brake fluid in the resevoir and the brakes adjusted properly, no worn out backing plates or damaged/ missing hardware.

got it fixed finally.
here is the story:
my pedal has been sticking for a week now and what not as previously said so today i got off work at 8 and im like well lets see if i can get my brake fixed today.
anyway i went to the car wash and vacumed the pedal assembly as good as i could with one of those huge vacumes. and nothing still sticks
so im like well im going to go to pep boys on my way home. and i talked to this vw guy about it and he was saying to check it for dirt and rocks. like perri said. and to clean out the break fluid. so i get home tired of dinking with this thing and i get down by the pedal assembly with a big dome light and start screwing around with it. with a screw driver. and cleaning the dirt out and rocks and using some degreaser and what not to get the crap out of there. so im messing around and bang right under the brake pedal there is a valve screw that i broke a while back that i probably threw into the car or something or it fell out of my pocket or something stupid.
anyway it works now and im glad i got it fixed with out to much hassle.
thanks perri and the rest of the guys for the ideas.
thanks again.
