Default Re: Shuddering/Vibrations while braking! Need help!

I had a similar issue with My accent Viva with ABS, Initially i thought its the break pads issue, so got it changed, The problem was not solved, Then got the Disks resurfaced, issue resolved, You don't have to change the disks for such a small issues.

As a rule of thumb, if you car has major shuddering only when braking, the reason is generally a warped disc/rotor. It could be that you need to change the brake pads if the rotor is OK.

Another possibility, though much rarer is that of something (usually small stones) getting stuck in between the pads and disc.

An unbalanced wheel will result in shuddering all the time.
