the brakes stoped working and it was determined it was the servo pump. the servo pump was replaced with a new one but im still having issues. i get the initial break when pressing on the pedal and then it stops and starts pushing back which makes it extremly difficult to stop the car

Hi my name is ***** ***** am here to assist you Today when this issue happens can you hear the ABS pump working as your brake pedal pushes back.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
i honestly have no idea sorry. i had the car back after the servo was replaced and had to take the car back in within 24hrs as it was clear their was still an issue. i could not get the car to stop properly when coming to a junction and had to come straight out. the brake initial works but then goes very hard and starts pushing back. when that happened i had to press down as hard as possible and the car rolls to a very very slow stop

The ABS is working when it should not often this is down to a corroded ABS pick up ring on the drive shaft (see image) when you say the servo pump was replaced did you mean the ABS pump.

Is that close to you and are you ok driving the vehicle.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
sorry i just copied and pasted. yes their is one by the looks of it im just worried about sending it else where as i had issue with another garage before sending it to the mechanic i usual use. the garage it in at the moment is ADB mechanics west sanquar ayr
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
its within a few miles of the garage its at right now. yes it can be driven but its very dangerous to drive and im not happy driving it myself as it sets off my anxiety because of the brake issue
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
can i ask why it needs to be a bosh approved garage?

I get that about your anxiety i do not understand the approach your garages are going about this issue it is not a complex issue to resolve. The reason for a Bosch approved is your ABS system on your vehicle is made by Bosch.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
they have said they dont know what the issue is becuse the vacuum pump is working. giving me the initial brake. but after the initial brake the pedal is pushing back. he said hes not sure if it the ABS or something else
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
from what i have told you all ready. do you think it sounds like an issue with the ABS?

It is the ABS pump working when it should not if you do not want to take it somewhere else to be repaired see what trouble codes are stored in the ABS module.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
thank you i will speak to my mechanic this morning and see if they have any further information for me and if not explain what you have just said and see what his reply is. if im not happy i will come back here and see about him moving it to the other garage in heathfield for them to look at

I am working all day if you want the mechanic to ask me any questions that is fine just use this thread. I will put a $5 premium service to you so we could talk on the phone this is an option you can still contact me via text on this thread.

Why does he think it is an ABS issue.

I imagine it was from what the engineer said as well as the conversation he had with yourself. you also thought ABS last week
