Re: Pedal sinking to floor when engine is on

The 2004 Espace I had did this too. I had an independent garage check the system and they could not establish what was going on, I contacted two Renault dealers for advice and both stated it was the way the brake system operated, a valve was designed to relieve pressure to protect some component(s) in such situations.

This was my experiece but with braking systems, if you have a concern I would be conferring with a dealer to ascertain for definite what was occurring -
safety is a must.
Currently in Big Dav's garage:
2010 Renault Espace 2.0dci
