Brake pedal going hard and soft (Brake servo issues?)
The red minari has a couple of little issues with the brakes. The first being that I was driving it the other day, no problems. Got to my destination, came back to the car about an hour later, drove off and the pedal was a lot softer then usual. The next time I braked, it was hard, next time hard then soft again! I'm guessing that the brake servo is playing up? I don't want to replace it just yet since I'm going away with the car for a weekend in august. Can I just disconnect and plug the brake servo hose? I know the pedal will be hard but it doesn't particularly bother me.
The second issue is that when I brake hard from speed the car pulls to the left. This obviously isn't particularly desirable! I've checked the pads and they all seem fine. Could the front callipers be out of adjustment? I can always re-adjust them as per the Haynes but I want to check that these are the issue before I go to the hassle.
Any assistance is, as always, appreciated.
