    I have an early MS with the 'noisy' brake fluid pump. It always comes on when I turn the car on, but it also seems to re-pump the first time I touch the brakes. My previous MS60 always did this when I turned it on, but never again once on to my knowledge.
    In addition, the pedal is very noisy when I initially touch it. I thought that this could be something rubbing physically at the linkage, but when I got down there and looked at it that doesn't appear to be where it's coming from. Any guidance, and whether these two might be related?

    I have a 2013 S85. And had the noisy pedal. Sounds like a moaning or crunching when you step on it. Service center clean and lubricated the pedal and brake boot. Sound has disappeared since.
