    1.9 TDI - Have you got bad brakes?

    I recently put a thread up about our A6 being abit rubbish on brakes and I thought it was the servo.
    Well unfortunatly it wasn't. I found this by replacing it and it not fixing it.

    It turned out to be the press fit on the vacuum outlet of the vacuum pump being loose and letting air in.

    Took it off, sealed it up and pressed the fit abit tighter.

    Brakes are 100% better now.
    Also fitted the 312mm kit I took off my A4 at the same time.

    Mods so far: Cruise control, DIS, Heated Mirrors, Tuning box, Xenonx, Centre Arm Rest, MFSW, RNS-E, SDS and Aero Wipers.
    To do: None yet.
    Next: Auto dip rearview mirror and Folding Mirrors.

    Mine were a bit pants... didn't stop quick enough, lots of fade. Got B5 S4's now - car stops in a far shorted distance now.

    I thought my 312mm were pants so fitted the B6 S4 ones.
    But this didn't solve the issue on out A6.

    I'll try and get some post work photos at the weekend fella.
    I was in too much of a rush to get it fixed and back on the road.
