    Question Brake Load Compensation Valve

    hi i have a astra est mk3 r reg the problem im having is if i brake a bit heavy the nsr brake locks on

    under normal braking it seems fine it dont pull to the side or anything like that and it is not binding or losing any fluid

    i was wondering if anybody knows a way of testing the brake load compensation valve to see if thats the problem its not seized and spring is conected

    mot coming up soon so i need to get it sorted

    thanks for looking

    the problem is the shoes need cleaning and adjusting properly, if the compensator was the issue then the problem would be on both rear brakes. I used to do shoes daily when i was a VX tech so this is all about correct adjustment

    I was going to make a new thread until I saw this. My brake compensator valve is quite rusted although I havnt noticed any problems with it.

    I think its a good idea to replace it so can anybody tell me how easy or difficult they are to change and where is the best place to purchase one?

    Also is it part of the MOT

    Thanks in advance
