Re: Renault trafic brakes failed!

Hello and welcome to the forum.

It sounds like you have a number of different issues....

Firstly,if you get a vibration through the steering when braking then the front discs are warped.

Secondly,the brake pedal going hard sounds like a servo fault.Have the vacuum pump,pipework and servo all checked.

The power steering could be a pump/rack/fluid level fault.

I think it's best you get the van thoroughly checked over,preferably get it trailered/recovered on a truck to a garage rather than chance driving it.

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