I realise this *pulling* to one side could also be an ABS brake sensor issue as the driver side will always go into ABS mode before the passenegrs side. But i've learned one thing since buy the car ..... *back to basics* before chasiNg *wild goose* theory's
How did you get on with this test with the fuse out? The ABS shouldn't be kicking in under normal braking. If its pulling to the right before the ABS kicks in, then it sounds like its a basic braking issue rather than an ABS issue (back to basics, as you say ) I'd be interested in the outcome, I've not heard of many brake related problems on this forum.

Re: Replacement Brake Pads/Discs

Ross: Just to answer this so all can see (he PM'd me as well!), I've not had any problems with the Delphi parts. Braking is better than it was before, but then the discs and pads were pretty worn so faded under heavy braking. All the parts fitted fine and wear is negligable so far. I bet had I paid the £400+ from Alfa, the discs and pads would have been similar in terms of quality, etc. but not such a known brand.
