T4 Post Icon Brake pedal travel

Still doing up my 99 1.9td .
I recently bought a Meyle new master cylinder and fitted it but after pressure bleeding the brake pedal went to the floor ! I have mucked about with it for a long while with no success so decided to put the old one back on and pressure bled the system. Now I can get a firm pedal but as soon as I start it the pedal just slowly goes to the floor - do I have bad master seals and a faulty new master or am I needing to do something else ? Cheers.

Google diesel pedal creep

May well be what you're experiencing is just the vac pump pulling the pedal down (as diesels often do), and perfectly normal
