Post

Back to the top
Brake Proportioning valve is leaking on my golf gti, I'm about to replace the  brake pipes. Can I remove it all together and not have on fitted ?

Do you mean the one by the rear beam?
Short answer is no, you'll lock the rear brakes up very very easily and that would be very bad. Later model cabriolets didn't have it, but they used some inline valves to do the same thing. No idea on part numbers, but there are plenty of cabby owners on here that could help I'm sure.
