Re: Twingo C01 drum brakes proportioning valve

Easiest way to find it, follow the brake pipes from the front,, going to the rear, you will find a unit with 4 brake pipes going to it.. thats your load sensing valve ( it might be tucked up in one of the corners) but you will have to keep following the brake pipes,, not all can be seen easily
You will see some thing that looks like a lever pivoted on the unit..
Make sure this is free, these seize up,,

I think, aesthetically, car design is so interesting - the dashboards, the steering wheels, and the beauty of the mechanics. I don't know how any of it works, I don't want to know,
