Eh...ABS is to allow you to steer while braking.

The one thing it doesn't do is stop a car quicker.

On current systems you can deactivate it with a blip of throttle.

Dunno about the cento set up.

Just removing your foot off the brake does it after a second or three.

And happy birthday....Rallycinq

Re: Schumacher ABS and MOT

yes yes i know this but it comes in far to early IMO and thus increases braking distance when driving 'spiritedly'..

I was just going to get the whole thing with pipes from a scrappers (only 25) would that be easier or does it still need totally repiping. Just saw on ebay a abs pump reconditioned is selling for 325!!! quids in if I remove it

Re: Schumacher ABS and MOT

The problem you will have when fitting pre-fabricated replacement pipes is the steering rack amongst other thing is in the way. Kunifer bends easy'ish so can be fed down behind the rack but is still a pain to do as the fuel pipes are there.

You have to remove the header tank and intake manifold for access.

Re: Schumacher ABS and MOT

Hi guy sorry not been back on (you may have noticed I had a problem with petrol leaking which is all fixed) the car is now back on the road except..... my 1) handbrake light is staying on all the time checked the fluid and its full, any ideas.

2) I set the airbag light off how do I reset it (I bought a cheapo code reader but it doesn't seem to cover airbag or abs!) could I use the cable from this for my laptop to use the fiat software thingy?

Sorry if I should of posted a new thread.
