Brake bias valve !

After a bit of advice really !

Brake bias valve is free and unsized however the screw that is used for adjustment is loose and an be moved about half an inch up and down.
Cars just passed mot but an advisory was to tighten the valve up.
I have a feeling if I tighten the screw it will snap as itís rusty. If It didnít snap what sort of slack should I be looking at on the spring ?

Any help would be much appreciated !

There shouldn't be any slack.

As soon as the suspension moves, the spring should be allowing the valve to be pressed.

Well a tiny bit of slack, really tiny, as soon as you put weight in the back of the car, the valve should be actuating.

Maybe just slacken it then tighten it quarter turn or something.

If you try and adjust it, it will snap, you can have no doubt about that! Best to have a new one at hand, or some similar sprung type adjuster.

Thanks for the advice !

It actually all went to plan and managed to adjust it all good ! Was paranoid about the rear locking up as It was so loose previously and I did add sum tension. However a few emergency stops at 50mph she was fine !

The MOT bloke advised me to just “wrap a cable tie round it” as it only just passed due to this. But then failed me on emissions by 0.006 ��
