Would a faulty load sensing valve on a transit connect stop

This answer was rated:

Hi. Would a faulty load sensing valve on a transit connect stop the rear footbridges working
JA: How many miles are on the car? Have you noticed any leaks lately?
Customer: 150000 and no leaks
JA: What year is your Transit Connect?
Customer: 2004
JA: Are you fixing your Transit Connect yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes. I have checked to see if it is siezed which it isn't but when moving the valve there seems to be no resistance. It's like there is no fluid. Could the seals have gone
JA: Is there anything else the Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Only that the handbrake works fine. This is for the mot and the only thing stopping it passing is the rear footbrake low effort.

Dear customer, it is very likely that it has drained, you should do a thorough check of this, it is very likely that there is a leak.

Dear customer, indeed, a faulty load sensing valve would cause the rear gangways to stop working, there is a possibility that there is no liquid in the lines possibly due to a leak, my main recommendation is that you check for leaks to start with.

If you have any doubts about this or would like someone to help you check it, please let me know where you are.
