Re: Megane mk1 96, brake load valve attachment to axle
Isn't the thin bar to the right a brake pipe??
I don't know about the Megane but these valves generally operate by a lever moving with the rear suspension as load in put in the boot. So more pressure is applied to rear brakes when carrying a heavy load.
So if that tongue is the operating lever it should move with load (get someone to sit in the boot and see what happens)
But whether it is pushed or twisted or needs to be attached, no idea.
On an old Peugeot Estate I had with similar valve, that the operating lever had broken, I removed the valve. No issues with MOT after that.
Check with your MOT inspector if that is an option.
