    Brake Load Sensing Valve

    Car just failed MOT on 'Brake load sensing valve linkage seized' on G/F's 2000 1.6 16v. Is this the bracket looking thing attached to the torsion beam.

    If so, is it a simple job of cleaning up, WD40 and greasing up etc... or is it more complicated?

    Cheers, Bri

    yes, try a good wire brushing then spray on plenty of plus-gas, once it is free, i always give it a coat of copper grease
