Smooth Brakes, Smooth Rides: Abbotts Auto Care's Guide to Brake Pedal Vibration
Hey there, fellow drivers! Today, we're diving into a common brake issue that might feel all too familiar – a Ford Falcon AU 4.0L with a persistent brake pedal vibration, even after machining or fitting new front rotors. It's the kind of annoyance that can leave you scratching your head. But don't worry, Abbotts Auto Care is here to show you how regular servicing is your ticket to brake bliss.
When the Brake Pedal Vibes Persist
Imagine you're behind the wheel of your trusty Ford Falcon, and as you hit the brakes, the pedal starts to vibrate. You've had the front rotors machined or replaced with brand new ones, but the problem lingers, even within the first 5000 kilometres. It's a situation that can make your drive less enjoyable.
This is exactly what happened to one of our valued customers with their Ford Falcon AU 4.0L.
Getting to the Bottom of It
At Abbotts Auto Care, we believe in solving the mysteries of car troubles. We hoisted the vehicle, removed the front wheels, and got to work. Our expert technicians checked the front brake calliper's operation, making sure the calliper slides were free and moving smoothly. We also checked the piston travel and the front bearing runout using a dial gauge.
And there it was – excessive runout. The culprits were identified.
The Solution Unveiled
To restore the Ford Falcon's braking system to perfection, we replaced both front wheel bearing assemblies. We also machined the front discs to ensure they were in optimal condition, and then we reassembled everything.
A road test was the final step, and the result? A smooth, vibration-free brake pedal.
The Power of Regular Servicing
This story emphasises the importance of regular servicing. It's not about being pushy; it's about persuading you that servicing can save you from unexpected brake issues. In this case, it spared our customer from persistent brake pedal vibration.
