    Default hard brake pedal

    Had a bit of a mishap a week before last down a country road , hit some ice and hit the brakes before missing car in front and ended up in the verge (fortunately car suvived as did I!!) however when I hit the brakes the abs came on , but noticed the pedal seem to go almost to the floor, probably due to me pressing so damn hard!! is this normal ? also seems to be since then that the pedal seems quite hard now when braking i.e very firm, don't think it's a problem ( car stops ok) or is it? as at least I haven't got brake fade or anything like that, has anyone else experienced the above?
    Cheers Pete

    I think the brake pedal will only go so far under normal braking, but will hit the floor when ABS kicks in

    mine does this, and my mates golf does too

    the hard pedal feel could just be the pads re-bedding down again

    Thanks for the reply mate, I think you could be right about the pads, probably what I did was give them an almost instant bed in, the way in which I had to apply the brakes that morning LOL, have to say I nearly shat myself when I got in that predicament!.

    Hi
    I have a 1.9 cdti 120 Vectra c
    The alternator died I changed it
    But no the brake pedal has gone very hard
    And there are nearly no brakes ?
    I've removed the vac pipe
    And tried the pedal and it was still the same ?
    Any ideas any 1
    I think the servo might have gone
    But the abs light is not on ?
    I have also unplugged the servo ecu
    Just to make sure the the abs light works and it does
    I'm stumped ?
    Cheers in advance guys
