T4 Post Icon Brakes sticking on

Hi all.

I am down visiting people near Lowestoft and on the way my brake peddle pressure was irregular and some times the brakes would stick on enough to make the van struggle. I ended up having to pull over and pump the peddle a few times to help the problem.

All four corners would stick on. I had two rear brake pipes replaced recently. Could this have anything to do with it? Do they need bleeding? Anyone recommend a garage near Lowestoft?

Cheers.

Sounds like the servo buddy, quite common when they start to bind lift the pedal with your foot.
It might not seem to move much but if its the servo/ master you will release the binding, hope that makes sense.


If anyone can Wak-Wak can !!!!

Thanks for the help.

Guy at QuickFit says the servo is fine and its a self adjusting mechanism behind the peddle.
He does not have time to have a look at it though. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it
Something I can do myself?

They don't have an adjustment behind the pedal to my knowledge
If you turn the engine off do they free up?????
