I have had for the last week or so now, vibration at anything above 60kph when i hit the brakes to slow down.
Just had the wheels aligned and balanced today thinking this would fix the problem, but tis still there.
Rang the tyre place they said its most likely the discs are the problem.
I only had them replaced not even 5 months ago and less then 10k have been done since replacing them.
Would this be the problem, and should i take it back to the joint that did the brakes and tell them to look at it and fix them up, seen as on the warranty info i got from them, its 12months or 20k.. so i'm well within this.
Took it back today, they were going to fix it on the spot, but i didnt have a way to get back to work, so taking it in tomorrow , the guy agreed it was the dics so all fixing under warranty tomorrow cool
only prob is the bums have a list of things checked on car, now nfi if they are OK or req attn as nothing is ticked on the work report, and the receipt has 1 x dba rotor and 1 x some unknown brand rotor, now how pissed off am i.. going back tomorrow to ask wtf is going on, thats just not on i say !.. mind you stops a lot better and no vibration now which is good
I think I have this problem on my EF GLi. Is it like, kind of small jolts on the steering wheel when you apply the brake?
I haven't had my car that long (probably 1 1/2 months), bought from a car yard. would this problem be covered by the compulsory 3 month warranty or would they tell me to get f|_|cked? from a new and used car dealer.
The guy who fixed mine said that if/when it happens again they wont warranty it cos of the brake pads, so i dont think rotors are really a warranty-able item, brake pads arent, you can always take it back and try, no harm in asking, you never know they might just do it
