Scudo braking issues

hi all,
i have a fiat scudo 1.9 multijet, 14 months old, 12500 miles on clock.
after having it serviced a couple of weeks ago my mechanic (i took it in because i was concerned about the brakes being a bit spongy) he said that the pads weren't releasing from the discs as quickly as they should and that as it's still under warranty he did no more work and suggested i get it looked over by them.
its booked in for tomorrow (if i can get it there), problem is after 10 mins the brakes seem to stick on and not release, usually for between 15 - 40 minutes before they seem to release and work ok for the duration of the remainder of the journey.
i'm concerned that fiat will try and fob me off with some technical gibberish that i don't understand and try not to do the work under warranty, my mechanic says the pads and discs and sound.
i s this a common problem? or am i just unlucky?
also if the admit that there has been a problem thats to be rectified under warranty, should i insist on a new set of pads? is that pushing my luck? or do you think that i have a case, seeing that they have had un-due wear and tear due to a technical issue.
cheers all.
hope someone can steer me in the right direction.
andy.

Common Problem after about 150K but never heard of it on a new van. Im sure the dealer will look after you with this one. At such a low mileage theres no getting out of it.

If all else fails! Try this- Take master cylinder off and ull see pushrod in servo with a bolt on end. Hold rod with mole grips, n with 7mm screw bolt in 2 to 3 turns, which on mine was alway in. Rebuild van and bleed brakes. No more sticking.

Re: Scudo braking issues

I have this exact same problem and still living with it... this was on a new Scudo van the company acquired ever since we got it, sent it to several garages since, brakes still seem spongy, and tried bleeding them on a number of occasions, no joy & they still seem spongy.. Not sure if its me, obviously its a larger van compared to my Doblo so will take more to stop it, but would have thought they would have felt a bit more positive. Any advice?
