Re: Clio brake problem

Give the tests in the link below a go to make sure the brake servo (Booster) is working ok.

If it is ok, take a good look at the Reluctor rings (ABS rings) on the drive shafts. Look to see if they are cracked or have damage. People have reported strange braking performance when these have had a crack in them, the problem normally shows up as a slight pulsing of the brake pedal just before the car comes to a stop but you never know.


Please take the time to enter your vehicle details in the "What's current in your garage?" box.

To do this:
Hover over the "TOOLS" tab at the top of the page
> then in the dropdown click on "User Dashboard"
> click on "Edit Your Details" at the top Left hand side.
> scroll down to the "What's current in your garage?" box and enter your vehicle details.
> Once the details are entered scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"

> Done.
