Hi, check the rear brake regulator behind the o/side rear wheel.
There is a large spring on that which rusts up, give it a smear of grease on the fixing points. Confusedalut:

Let us know if it cures it. :thumbsup:

On looking at diagrams on servicebox, i could see how i would get a twang noise, but i did have a problem like this years ago on a escort where the regulator spring was rusted and wondered if the van had one, thanks lads.. will have a look later and let you know.

http://public.servicebox.peugeot.com/ I would imagine. Looks like it's restricted to the trade.

You will find info on load sensing valve / spring adjustment within above manual.
Youl will need some brake line pressure gauges to calibrate the spring tension.
