Brakes (or lack of) on VW Tdi 2003

Post by jimandcilla on Tue Aug 04, 2015 8:04 pm

We have just returned from our tour of Scotland (11 weeks) before leaving had the van checked and MOT etc. A couple of times when starting first thing the brake pedal felt rock solid with no brake at all for a few seconds.I put this down to the servo not having built up enough vacuum, I eventually got round to looking under the bonnet and found the rubber vacuum pipe split in two places as it is only a push fit onto the pump, one way valve and servo.I fixed it temporarily with self amalgamating rubber tape and jubilee clips.This is probably the wrong place to post this but it is worth checking for peace of mind (and a foot brake that works)
