I think the pressure accumulator is at fault, very little brake assist,
brake booster not getting pressure

> When you press the pedal gently the pedal feels like normal and the brakes
work reasonably well. If you stand on the pedal hard the pedal feel is hard
with very little braking effect but if you stay on it (maintain the
pressure) the full assistance comes in and the brakes suddenly work well. At
least at the moment the brakes are stopping me but it is a little
disconcerting to say the least. Is this a signal of something starting to
fail or can it be to do with adjustment of the rear brakes? I have a problem
with these not adjusting properly recently and am trying to work out why but
the ground is covered in snow and I don't really want to get under it for
the time being (wimp? me? nooo)
