  2. Strange Electronic Sound when Brake Pedal Released

    As the title says; there is a high pitched electronic tone which sounds when I am driving. It is very quiet and intermittent. It stops when I apply the brakes and returns when I continue driving. Any ideas what this could be? I have run diagnostic checks via the EOBD socket, but there are no...

    Car in question is a Scenic 1.4 16v MK1 phase 2, 2002 manual box with abs. This post refers to a temporarily permanant??? solution to the brake servo hissing when the brake pedal is released. If your braking performance is still fine and you just have the hissing then this may suit you. Any...

  9. hissing when brake pedal is released

    When i release the brake pedal on a 1999 scenic i can hear a hissing sound which stops when i slighly press the pedal again. My brakes work fine and are not soft or hard to press. Is it a fault with the servo or just a leak in a pipe. Also is it safe to drive if it is the servo fault.
