Xantia hop in brake pedal

Postby Eugene » Wed Aug 28, 2002 2:20 am

I have a 1994 Citroen Xantia with a slow hop in the brake pedal. The brakes come on and off slowly and can be felt in the pedal. The abs is working correctly, and anyway the hop is too slow. Front discs are not at fault as they are new and the hop is there when the car is stopped. It feels like a hydraulic problem. Anyone any ideas?
