Hello All,

When the engine is off I can hear a faint sound from the area of the ABS pump - it is almost as if the motor is turning very slowly (I know this cannot be happening).

My guess is faulty accumulator (which is almost new).

Any ideas what this could be before I change the accumulator again?

If I may add it sounds like its boiling and pump has a very slight vibration, goes awy when pedal is depressed to release pressure, very odd as I checked above vehicle today, yes relay was removed.

Will be interesting to see if anyone else has had same issues....

Mmmmmm with some boerwors,biltong and a castle of cause!!!! :clap: :clap: :clap: :dance:

Ok the sound your describing could be air. When air is in the system the pump will make some odd noises as it reaches pressure cut out. When the accumulator was changed was the brake system bled????

I doubt it was bled cos the bloody dealers....ah sorry stealers did it, if I replace anything on brakes I bleed (not me)

So Spiggy I think a bleed is indeed required before we change.

As for the Braai things have changed a little, its now Rump steak (big) and its the best in the world so Im told by many tourists including USA folks (land of meat my a....) instead of Castle, Millers, Heiniken or something like that and oh yeah bloody black label tops them all.....its a new South africa........been back now just over 3 years and loving every moment of it, UK is great but its too cold for cos Im a out doors person................braai's, swiming pool, spa.., life couldnt be better
