possible random braking

Hi folks just a quick query, when driving my missus 96 megane coupe auto it occasionally feeels as though the brakes are randomly applying themselves, i think this as only been happening since i freed the silly load valve thingy to get it through the mot, could this cause this problem?

Re: possible random braking

It is possible the piston inside silly thing (load adjuster valve) could be sticking and not returning correctly.

That silly thing needs to be working correctly otherwise you could end up doing a ground loop where the back end tries to overtake the front

Re: possible random braking

I have come across this problem once before this random breaking fault & it was down to a faulty brake servo unit Hth Regards Mickeybo
