Sticking brake pedal

We have a strange intermittant fault on a 2003 156 1.9 JTD. The brakes occasionaly stick on when the brake is pressed, The strange thing is the pedal stays down as well. Tap the pedal with your foot and it springs back up. The brakes then work fine again. This is only intermittant.

Has anybody come accross this before or know what the fault is?

This is either very cheap..i.e a return spring (and I'm not sure if they have them) or very expensive possibly master cylinder.

I have an alfa 159 jtdm after 6 weeks old the brake pedal was sticking on it turned out to be the servo ( big job ) and now after 6months old the same thing is happening again.

I've got the same problem now after very heavy braking during my "accident", the pedal stays partially down, it can be pulled up to release brakes. But it happens every time I touch the brakes, any suggestions??
