    Hi All.

    I was wondering if anyone could help with my dangerous brakes, I am unable to use the car because of this. I have read this could be the servo?? can anyone lend their expertise with my issue. How do I test servo/vacuum pump? Thanks so much...:)

    pull pipe from servo and hold your thumb over the end of the pipe with engine running you should feel a good vac, hold brake pedal firmly down and retain the pressure as you start engine as engine builds vac the servo increases your pedal pressure so you should feel pedal sink a little

    I was thinking of @ming

    I suggest we retire from the RR section and make our way into the comfort of the AG drawing room, what say?
