Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

Does this happen only at low speeds? Does the pedal pulsate when applying the brakes? Does the pedal drop to the floor?

Customer reply replied 12 years ago

Most noticable at low speeds- it seems to work fine to slow you down but when you need a quick stop- good luck.

No it doesnt pulsate- seems like steady pressure but you need to push very hard to stop

- The pedal does not go all the way to floor but like i said, have to push very hard to stop

Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 12 years ago
You may have a problem with the brake booster. First look at the plastic vacuum line going from the booster to the top of the intake. There is a check valve in there that sometimes will corrode causing this problem.
