002 nearside rear (load va) brake valve leaking [3.6.a.1]
003 front brakes imbalanced [3.7.a.2d]
brakes failures: RBT front brake imbalance: 29%

now what does this mean?? is it a big job to rectify it?? can this be done myself or would i be better putting it in a garage?? also the rear brake pipe are they just standard brake pipes or do you need to order from renualt??
If by brake pipe they mean the brake hose then its a 5 minute job and should sort out problem number 3. The hose can be brought for a couple of pounds.

For number 2 you'd have to know why it is leaking. Cant see it being anything too serious. Worst case scenario would be a new caliper.

All of it should be doable for around 50 tops.
Currently in samlmort's garage:
