Asked by Jun 25, 2013 at 08:49 AM about the 2002 Vauxhall Vectra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair


1 Answer


the ABS has an hydraulic accumulator that needs to be charged with repeated pumps of the pedal and solid connection to the vacuum assist~ Be sure the fluid is topped off and pump the pedal repeatedly to pressurize the accumulator and drive any air out~ make sure no air gets into the hydraulic circuit, or you'll have to start all over again~
