Brake proportioning valve

Hi,

My Tempra SW has just failed it's MOT due to a seized rear brake proportioning valve. Does anyone know how easy these are to remove and refurbish?

I would buy a new one, but they're 121.00 according to the parts CD & it's just not worth it.

Cheers

Andy

Re: Brake proportioning valve

dont know for that car but there usually not too hard to remove. you may be able to free it as they tend not to get compressed much and as such seize in position
