The valve is under the n/s/r of vehicle in front of the rear cross beam , you will have to jack up the vehicle and use axle stands , try oiling the pivot on the valve and at the same time work it with a pipe wrench , they will un sieze just work at it

I have '98 Polo that has been laid up for 6months.

Brakes wont rust over in 6 months. Sounds like the parking brake is stuck. Check the parking brake lever for slop and free play. If it goes up and down with no force the release catch is stuck. Use a flathead screw driver and manually trip the release. Hope this helps.

The linkage on my 206 load sensing valve is seized and it has failed mot i need to find where it is so i can unseize it

Look under the rear you will see a box with 4 brake pipes gonig in on the top. There is a lever that you need to spray some WD40 on it and get a set of grips and move it up & down. Keep spraying and moving it until it comes free.

How do you remove the rear brake drums from a volkswagon polo. I have remove the wheel and the hub retaining screw but am not sure how to remove the brake drum

You will need a 2 lb. sledge hammer hit the outer rim of the brake drum alternating from side to side once the brake drum appears to loosen rotate with both hands only in one direction as you pull outward forcefully.

2000 4 runner brake bleeding do I do the rear brake and load sensing valve then move to the front brake or do front and rear then load sensing valve ?

you do not need to do the load sensing valve, just bleed at the wheels. as follows; r/r, l/r, r/f, l/f. for best results have one of your friends inside and have them push down on the pedal, you open the bleeder, close the bleeder, and then have him let up on the pedal. do this until no more air is seen coming out of the bleeder screw.

Brake Problem - Brake Won't Quit on my 4 x 4

The LSPV is not the issue. It simply allows more fluid to go the the rear WCs whilst carrying a load. More load = more fluid to the rear brakes.

What I suspect, based upon the info you have provided so far, is that the rear brake pivot mechanisms, for the park brake, are seized. Pull on the rear park brake cables at each side, and see if the metal thing on the backing plate moves freely. If not, that metal thing is seized, and either needs taken apart & lubed, or, if it is severly seized, replaced. This is a VERY common problem. Rectify the park brake pivot concern, readjust the rear brakes, and see if this does not cure your problem. If you have any other question, please feel free to post back.
Hope this helps, and, thanks for choosing FixYa!
