Re: Jag brakes

FYI, all Volvos have this two line setup. The theory (as described to me) is that
if one side fails, you still have brakes. You should notice an indicator under
the speedo that says "Brake Failure." When this comes on, the car is sensing a
loss of pressure somewhere. The nice part is that you have all four pistons
pushing when there is no malfunction.
