It semms to be much worse if i'm heavy with the brakes and the engine is on, It's as if the car is braking all on it's own. Or at least when i brake they dont return, But i know everything is free ????
Just a thought,but what happens if you disconnect the vaccum pipe to the servo and then pump the brakes?.Do they still stick on?.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
