Hi and Welcome to the LOC :)

Does the vibration happen straight away when you first drive the car after its been left overnight? or

The longer/further and faster speed you drive the car the worst the vibration gets over time?

To me if sounds like a sticky drivers side brake caliper is the main problem,but because its been semi seized its warmed the disc giving the vibration.The disc might also be cracked from overheating.

Chips.

I agree, reads like a caliper/slider sticking!

Yea sometime it happens straight away being left over night but noe its happening alot , the wheels shrudder alot , but what could be the smell , its like somethings rubbing against each other and yeah i can feel the vibration when i brake in the brake pedal aswell as in accelerator , could it be jammed piston in the brake calipers or what , im gonna take em to Kwick fit tommorow and see what they say abt it . Whats u guys suggest

Hi,

The smell if its a sticky caliper will be the brake pads overheating because its stuck against the disc.

Ask a friend or anyone who you work with about a garage that you can trust to do the job right.If theyve been ripped off they will also tell you where not to go ;)

So if its a sticky caliper what do they usually do , change the calipers or jst the brake pads , any idea about that and yeah is it an expensive job ::P
