    Brake pedal really hard

    Hi guys I'm new on this Forum so be gentle
    I bought an Audi A4 2001 1.9Tdi sport and the brake pedal has become really hard, it brakes but you have really got to press hard on the pedal bit dangerous in my opinion, any ideas of this could be? Took the battery out to give it a good charge and noticed a lot water clogged i around where the battery sits, the drain hole was blocked so freed that up,thought that may have something to do with the braking?

    Any advice appreciated
