In the last week the brakes have become difficult to press down and then it seems like the ABS system is engaging to compensate. It did this before a while ago but only when going at slower speeds, but now it does it all the time.
Do you
have the same problem?

This is common when one of the front wheel bearing hubs is going out. to see which side, raise the car in the front and grasp the top and bottom of the wheel to see which one has play.

Once found, here are the instructions on how to replace the bearing hub with a generic guide/video and specific instructions on how to fix it on your car in the diagrams below.

We can also run the ABS codes to see if any come up
