Do Not Sell My Personal Information



Recommended Posts

New boy here.

My problem is that sometimes when I come to a junction ,slowing down and turn the steering to left or right  then  gently apply the brakes to stop to view clear road before proceeding, the brakes then release themselves. By applying the brake pedal firmly the brakes then function again. I have also used the hand brake before I found I could use extra pressure on the foot pedal.

I have been to my local garage where all brake pads were replaced and when the fault finder was applied no fault code came up.

I now have another appointment with the garage for this problem to be investigated.  But where to start?

Has anyone come across this problem before and can any members suggestions be made to identify the fault?

The brakes work normally in all other circumstances.

Petrol or diesel, auto or manual


If it's a diesel i would look at the servo checking the one way valve and the vacuum pump are working correctly, if the rpm drops it may be loosing vacuum
