Hi
I have not used my 206 for around 1 week, but now notice a 'pulsing' through the brake pedal when applied.  The brakes appear to behave normally in every other way.
Any ideas
Thanks

you either have a servo problem or air bubbles in the brake fluid - i'd get to a garage asap, if an engine goes you can still stop safely - but if your brakes go...well...

Thanks for your reply.
Why do you suggest a servo or air in the system problem? Brakes are not 'spongy' or lacking in power ?

Hi
It is a 2002 1.1l
No ABS
drums on rear, discs on front.
No reduction in braking power and no effect on steering.
You can feel it most when pressing the pedal lightly
Only really felt at driving speeds, not detectable at very slow speeds.

thanks for your help.

hi,,i would say you have a warped disc.
but i would drive it at the speed most noticeable and making sure know one behind,just gently lift handbrake,as it just starts to grab lightly feel if any vibration comes through car/handbrake?
you will be able to confirm disc or drum fault then.
