Hi all

just bought a 2007 S type and the brake pedal sticks down for a second or two when braking but when I was coming off the motorway today and I had not braked for about half an hour the pedal stuck  down on the exit slip road and I had to lift it up with my foot. It seems to be getting worse and the brakes are grabbing . I am thinking its the servo Has any got any one got any idea or had the same problem .

Welcome to the Club, Steve.

I would start by checking Brake Fluid level.  I had a similar issue with a Triumph Herald about 50 years ago and fund that the fluid had not been changed for a few years.

But I would get the car into a garage ASAP.

Regards,

Peter.

Hi Steve

We had exactly the same problem on our '07 S-type SE, alternating with very dead and heavy brakes.   Our local Jaguar Indie diagnosed servo failure (quite common on the model) and, for safety's sake, we had the servo AND master cylinder changed.  Henceforth, all working fine.

We should prefer to have the job done by a Jag Indie as some "average" garages may not be quite up to speed on the S-type braking system.  Not a cheap job but did you have a warranty?

Good luck, and despite the problem, happy growling

Hi Peter and Carole thanks for the welcome and your prompt responses. The problem was not the brake fluid level but it was the brake servo. No warranty Carole so I had to do the job myself , took me a few days fiddling with nuts under the dash board , anyway its fixed now .Thanks again for the info.

 

KInd regards Steve
