    Default Hello, my first thread ;) Vectra brake problem

    Well only just joined and hope someone can help me out with a problem...

    I had the front passenger side wheel bearing changed 2 weeks ago and straight away got a problem with the brakes. Never had an issue before this work was done... Most of the time the brakes work fine but now and then under heavy braking the car will pull very sharp to the right, feels like the front left passenger side brake is not working. It will do this a few times and then be fine again for a day. Took it back to the garage and they bled the brakes checked everything had been put back ok but found nothing wrong ??? Obviously there is an issue

    Thanks in advance, Ian

    the only thing i can think of is that the piston in the caliper has started to stick. They will more than likely have removed the caliper to fit the bearing and maybe disturbed it. probably about £80 to £100 at the factors. I bet they will argue it was about to fail anway and there not responsible.
