    Default vec front brakes

    Hi All.

    I've got a problem with the front brakes on my Vec. Under braking at higher speeds (motorway speeds) I am getting a vibration up through the steering wheel. Had it before about a year ago and thought it was discs so replaced them. It appeared to get better but never really went away. At lower speeds under braking there is, what i can only describe as a 'pulsing' through the brakes - applying releasing, applying releasing etc...

    Any ideas appreciated.

    sounds like they've warped again if the pulsing has come back

    Do you sit with your foot on the brake pedal when you stop - if the disk is hot that amongst other things can cause warping

    There was a recall for ABS for earlier models-worth checking to see if it was done or if it's using the ABS all the time?

    Basically ring the stealer up and ask if it's been done or check on the site first under RECALLS I think. I only know cause i took my Signum in last week and was told about the recall but mine didn't need it!
