However, over a period of a couple of years we have experienced a complete loss of brake pedal pressure and stopability!
This has only happened about 3 times so completely random, after a couple of pumps with the foot restores the pedal to full functionality.
Its as if a seal leaked and then resealed itself???

I understand that it is likely to not be the servo system as that only assists the brakes..... so what are the bellows for on the pedal?

Has anyone resolved this issue?

There have been a number of recalls for braking issues with Scenics.
