My Maverick has developed a judder while braking, particulary going downhill between 50-40 MPH. Any ideas?

Howdy!

The Maverick is a 4x4, basically a Nissan Terrano by another name. The version I have is a 2.7 litre diesel, 5 door. I do a 60 mile round trip to work each day, which account for the 84,000 miles on the clock!

See Ya!

Ok gotcha.I know the Nissan Terrano.I have found the most common causes for this type of thing are worn steering bushes or Ball joints particularly on these types of vehicles with large wide tyres fitted, the brake disc's needing machinging or the tyres themselves getting uneven wear or out of balance and the possibility of wheel alignment being out..If you are unfamiliar with checking your steering joints then get them checked by a mechanic.As i say these seem to be the more common but of course this does not rule out other things. Unfortunately I can't point you to the exact one. Hope this is a help.

Thanks for the advice. The bearings and joints have just been checked on a service. Gettting the wheel balance/alignement check is on my 'to do'list, together with a million other things!
