    Default 205 front brake adjustment

    Anyone know wheather the front brakes can be adjusted as I've been driving in the wet lately and have noticed the front left wheel locks up when braking hard... can I back this off a little?

    Hey Luca,

    I had a similar problem when my drivers side rear suspension was stuffed. Are you sure that your rear suspension is all good. Try fit your fingers down in between the tyre and wheel well on the drivers side. Or see how much play you have in the trailing arm.
    Cheers,
    Sean

    Seany... the rear is all good. I'm guessing that the front left caliper is coming on first and locking first...

    Just in case you were wondering there's no brake adjustment on the front brakes of a 205.

    Luca,

    Get a service kit... and service the front.. otherwise it could be the brake hoses...

    Hoses are $40 each from memory and the service kits are $47 each..
