Squeaky wheel problem is getting more and more complex (expensive!).

Garage now say they need a Hydraulic Brake Servo and that 99% of the servos ar vacuum.

Would anyone have a Hydraulic Brake Servo for a '96 2.6 Audi Cabriolet?

Thanks in advance!

Cannot see how the servo would cause squeeky wheels (or brakes)? Is it jammed on or something?

The servo on the 2.6 I think is the same as on the 2,8. Its not vacuum but is driven by the hydraulics pump via the "bomb" which is really an accumulator. (might have misunderstood you..you might know this already!)

Looks like a visit to the breakers...

Apparently the ABS pump I think it was was faulty resulting in brake calliper sticking on and deteriorating, after replacing the pump a servo is needed too due to a leak.

That's the extent of my technical knowledge I'm afraid!

I think I found the right part and it should be fitted today tomorrow, so fingers crossed for that and thanks to folk who sent messages of help!

Digging up an old thread (my apologies) but does anyone know if the accumulator was the same across all engine sizes? I know of a 1.8 with a good (I think) accumulator, and I want to replace my guff one Smile
