You mean brake load sensor.
Usually by the back axle. It spreads the braking evenly between front and rear brakes.
When did you last change the brake fluid. It is hygroscopic(attracts water).
When it is contaminated with water it makes your brakes fade very quickly.

Renault megan. Intermittent loss of brakes, then pedal goes hard


Make sure the emergency brakes are back off and adjusted after pad replacement. A lot of mechanics forget or don't know about this. Also check the master cylinder. Push on brake pedal hard and see if it sinks to the floor, if it does then the master cylinder is bad. If there is air in the brake system it is best to pressure bleed or vacuum bleed the brakes to get the air out. Often when using the two person pump the pedal and hold will not be effective in getting all the air out if a line is broken and then replaced.

Renault clio abs light comes on with vibration through brake pedal. discs and pads renewed


How hard are you stepping on the brake pedal? What you are describing sounds like the ABS system activating. When you step on the pedal hard enough to engage the ABS the light will come on, in some cars it will blink. You will also feel the thumping/vibration in the pedal since the system works by repeatedly engaging and disengaging the brakes. If it is happening when you step lightly on the brakes then you may have a bad wheel speed sensor or possibly a bad or miss-adjusted brake switch.

Clio 2002 authentique 1.2 8 valve stop light & hand brake light stay on in the dash can anyone help!


hi from uk the stop/handbrake light has two warning functions it will illuminate when hand brake is applied or is left on whilst driving or not fully off position ?? the other function is it is warning you that your brake fluid in the reservoir is low/requires topping up ? if it is low ? this could be due to a fluid leak ?either from pipes or wheel cyl's/calipers ? OR ? just that as your b/pads and shoes wear lower then fluid from reservoir displaces from res to cyl's to compensate for wear so may i suggest you 1st check fluid level+top up if low? then check for leaks as above more important have your brake pads and rear shoes or pads if fitted checked for wear/safety i advise this considering age/milage? of car and if you have no record of being checked/replaced recently? if your brake pads are fitted with low pads wear indicators this will also give warning hope this helps? good luck !

How to change the front brake pads on a v reg clio


The Renault clio should be easy,.jack up one wheel and remove the wheel and see what if any special tools will be needed. most have two bolts that hold the caliper to the back plate. The caliper hold the pads. Some of thes bolts are Allen head, some are Torq head, all are metric. some are held in with clips, remove the retaining pins and pull the clips out and the caliper comes out the front. Press the piston back into the caliper, so the new pads will fit over the rotor.

Abs senor is going bad


Check, visually for brake pad contamination. Especially inboard brake pad/ Any fluid leakage should be visible through holes in wheel or on the backside of wheel. If no leak or contamination abs can be in question as suggested.

I have a Clio 172 sport but the rear brakes are not working, however the handbrake is fine? As all the braking is at the front of the car this is damaging the front discs?


Most of your braking occurs at the front of the car, anyways, but you need to get those rear brakes checked...

If you have a split (front-rear) master cylinder, check that. Did the fluid level drop enough at any time such that the system may have "sucked air" into the rear system only?

Brakes not working properly PLEASE HELP!!!!


Chances are there is a problem with the Anti loc portion of the braking system. If the pads are fine you may have air in the system and in this case the lines would need bleeding. ( to get the air out) I recommend taking it to a reputable mechanic. If your not familiar with breaking systems.
