i had to get my front drivers side alloy welded today due to a crack, they seem to have done a good job besides the fact they ruined the face of the alloy, presumebly due to clamping it down when they were doing the work.... but thats beside the point

anaway once the tyre was back on the alloy and stuck back onto the car i drove off.

I have now noticed when i press the brake pedal there is some form of a noise coming from the pedal when i press it, its as if its a hissing sort of noise?

It seems to be breaking correctly, its just the noise is annoying and makes me think something is wrong

any idea whats causing this? something they did when they put the wheel back on?

thanks

It's not unusual to hear this when the engine is not running as each press of the pedal releases some of the vacuum in the servo.

Sounds like a leaking brake servo or a leaking servo pipe if the fault ONLY occurs when you press the footbrake.

Best to take it to your local garage to get it checked out before it becomes worse.

Pretty sure mines always made a slight hiss when I press the brake pedal, kind of before it starts to bite.

It is quiet but always there running or stopped

yeah c.b thats exactly it

bit worried now with goonturbo saying it might be a leaking servo pipe....eeek!

there seems to be no degredation in its braking ability though
