EB2 sedan 4.0ltr, Brakes are OK in the dry but I am having a real problem in the wet! They just dont seem to pull up and feel real dodgy... but only in the wet???? Any ideas or has anyone else had this problem??
Any comments greatly appreciated.

hey kiwi
I had a similar thing happening to me before I had it machined and change to a new brake pad. The problem with mine was the pad was glazing which was ok in the dry but never comforable in the wet.
Clean your rotor or caliper of brake dust? Also check the brake pad if its glazy then get new pads and rotor deglazed.

Hi Kerry, I havent got the car back yet.. its in for improvements and to earn its tickford wings...read post on tuesday.
Pads and rotors are standard on the back and new disc and semi metallic pads on front.
Sorry to hear about your head gasket!
Cheers

Dont use bendix ultimates with dba gold disc's.
I had to have them machined after about 10,000km as the pads were to hard on the disc's and not to mention the dust!
Currently run National's (compound A) and find they are as good wet or dry and next to no dust.
