MoT failure: Rear brakes not 'pulling' very high figure on V6 - any ideas?
This follows on from my other post yesterday re. the steering rack gaiter - had the MoT yesterday and it failed on the gaiter and this brake issue.
The tester put it on the rolling road, and it only 'pulled' about 40 (units?) when it apparently should be well over 100? Indeed he compared it to a Punto he had done that day which got 140ish, so surely mine should be more? Has anyone else had this problem?
The discs are fairly new, as are the pads and handbrake cable. So not sure what to check...? May be take the caliper off and clean it and around the pads....?
Again, any help greatly appreciated as I need to get it re-tested soon.
