Hi
I recently bought an EB with ABS brakes and it has a frightening problem, when the car is moving very slowly, perhaps rolling to a stop, the brake pedal will sometimes freeze in the up position.

It's rock solid and needs a fair amount of force before it breaks free and moves down to stop the car normally, this gets petty scary when your pulling up behind a car at the lights. At any speed above walking pace the brakes are fine and the problem only happens perhaps once a day.

I'm guessing it has something to do with the ABS has anyone seen this before?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

yup

you have the wrong rotors on your car!!!

sounds liek they have put ef/el rotors on a EB

i preussemed that the e series ABS rotors are the same but no they are not as the problem u are describing happened to my dads ED when i put ef/el ABS rotors on it

it now has the correct ED rotors and no problems!

The disks have been replaced with after market items so it's very plausible, thanks.
