Shuddering when braking
#1
Hi All,   
          I have a Berlingo Multispace 05 ( 1.9 d ) 147 k on the clock .    Last November 2015 I noticed a shuddering when braking , I took the car to my local garage and they said it was the brake discs , they changed the discs and the car was alright for 3 weeks when the problem came back again . The garage checked the discs and one of the discs had warped on the drivers side , the garage then changed another set of discs, again the problem came back after roughly 3 - 4 weeks again ? The garage then changed the discs again ( 3rd set ) but this time they replaced with more  expensive discs and they also changed the calipers .  Guess what .. The problem is back again !!  I've literally given up now and I just ''put up'' with the fault . Any Ideas .. Please !!

Sounds like a suspension problem to me, no expert but have they checked the wishbones and lower ball joints? does it steer correctly?

Thanks for that , I'll take it back this week and get them to check it out .  There is no problem with the steering whatsoever though ?

If you carry a lot of weight or if you are hard on your brakes, or have oversize wheels you will get more heat build up. If your rear brake compensator is stuck or something else wrong with rear brakes, you would be relying on the front brakes too much.
I would start with the rear brakes and make sure they are working correctly.

EDIT: Also make sure front brakes aren't binding, but I would have thought they would have checked that.

When you stop in traffic or any point do you sit with your foot on the brake peddle if you do the heat in the pad's will warp the disc not saying you do it's just a point .

If you've got Stop/Start in an auto then you have to keep your foot on the brake or it restarts.

Unless you can be bothered to turn the switch to N and put the handbrake on of course, which is probably what I should do but don't.

My brake disks haven't warped in 17k miles of not using the handbrake. But we do both drive like a vicar.

Definitely don't put up with it - they shouldn't shudder or warp. Could something else be making the disks do this? e.g. if the wheels are wobbling while you're braking could that be bending them?

Could be play on a ball joint. With the roadwheel in in its normal position (not jacked) give the top of the tyre a good tug and push to see if you can rock it inward and outward. Any free movement could be the wheel bearing, the strut, or the lower ball joint, and further investigation is warranted to find out which. If the ball joint it needs prompt attention as it's a safety issue. Then rock the wheel in the steering direction to see if the track rod end is OK.

Tyre edge wear is also symptomatic of this.

If it sounds unlikely that a garage would change the disc without noticing a worn ball joint- perfectly feasible. The play often disappears when the vehicle is jacked.

Was the hubs cleaned up before new discs were fitted?.
