    Default Load sensing valve

    Anyone adjusted theirs after lowering their car?

    I really noticed it in the snow and ice, the back would lock quicker than the front and now I have noticed the rear discs are heavily worn and the brake dust builds up alot quicker on the rear wheels.

    So anyway of backing the rear brakes of or fooling the sensor into thinking the car is not lowered.

    Wouldn't imagine the Vectra would have one. They're usually found on vehicles with only one brake pipe running front to rear, ie non abs vehicles.

    My 306 had one fitted and that had ABS. Worked like a plunger/piston.

    the last vauxhall car with a load valves or modulators with abs was the cavalier,no vectra b or c has load valves as the abs takes care of this,i would have a look at the rear brakes in case there is a problem
