While I was moving the car back and forth in order to positon the car on the lift,
I suddenly felt the brake pedal sunk slightly.

Later, I found out that in order to re-create the same issue, it had to be heat soaked and the pedal pressed very slowly,
just like when you were caught in traffic jam and using brake pedal in crawling speed stop and go traffic.

You can't re-create it when the car was cold or when brake pedal pressed at normal speed, just like when you were driving on the street.

I know another owner experienced the same issue when he was queuing in the traffic for attending one of the Club event.

He parked the car and several hours later, tested the brake without any issues and even managed to get back home.

Will be replacing the brake master cyl as I need to replace the two brake pipes at the master cyl any way during the ABS Upgrade.

Please be careful with this DIY 3rd brake lamp wires.

The sleeve got too old and showing tiny crack.

Could cause short circuit if it's the +B side.

Not sure why but despite having the Smartenna, the rod antenna connector was disconnected so the aerial doesn't extend at all.
