Re: brakes!!

A servo fault would generally stiffen the brakes, hard pedal but little effect.

Do the brakes stiffen up if the pedal is pumped?
If so I'd be suspicious of a minor leak but one has let air in the system.

If just low on power, long on travel, could be master cylinder or a stuck shoe/pad or adjustment.

Can't discount master cylinder but first the system needs a good looking at
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
