Hi

The ABS plugs are connected to the loom behind the inner arch.

You will often find plugs with nothing connected to it or sockets with no corresponding plug, this is normal. If everything works, then it shouldn't be connected to anything. These plugs don't come off by themselves to it is not going to just happen, so yours is just one of the spares that they fit for the other models.

The picture is upside down.

If that is the "drivers foot well" then your car is left hand drive and your BIO is wrong!
This means your version of "driver" and "passenger" are reversed to the UK version. Please clarify.

Apologies , I have a RHD , not the drivers footwell , passenger footwell. I have also seen on other posts that there is a "plunger" that goes down when brake pedal is pushed down , and this sometimes gets stuck , I cannot find this , is it under the rubber cover in the passenger footwell, I would appreciate any help.

Thanks

I am not altogether satisfied with PSA's answer to the brake booster and master cylinder being on the left hand side of a right hand drive car! I.E. a dirty great bar going from one side of the car to the other! With levers and pivots!

When I push hard on the brake pedal (not while driving) it can feel 'clicky' or 'sticky' at the extension of travel and can feel like it could stick there. But it never has. I have not heard of the brake pedal getting stuck before. Not saying it cant but I haven't heard of it. If it was to stick I would be suspicious of the pivot points at the drivers pedal or the connection to the brake booster.
