Your rotors or discs are warped. Have them resurfaced or replaced.

My car vibrate at 100-120km/hr i have bought new tires and done the wheel balncing but it still vibrate and whenever i tried to apply the break at this speed it vibrate serously. it's a 2001 mazda mpv


This is due to poor settings of the wheel bearings,tyres,- check balancing once again, wheel drums/ brake pads,suspension , joints and steering.
In all the entire front suspension must be checked, the WHELL ALIGNMENT must be checked with precision and each of the wheels must be checked for damage on hub, axle or chassis.

Had bad vibration in front end of car when brakes applied,installed new rotors and pads,still have slight vibration when brakes applied.


do u feel the vibration in the steering wheel or in the seat,i bet the most vibration was coming out of the front brakes and a little out of the rear brakes,u might want to change the rear brakes if the vibration is still annoying,also were the front wheels torqued to spec when installed?? if not u might end up with warped front brakes again,hope this helped

Changed the front brakes on my 2005 Grand Caravan and now there's clicking and serious vibration at speeds above 40mph. Also, I need to bleed the brakes, b/c the brake pedal doesn't respond normally, and I...


sounds like the pads were either installed wrong or your forgot the have the rotors ground down. grinding down the rotors would have taken out any extra vibration. if the rotors arent ground flat, the pads will cause vibration as they seat against the uneven surface of the rotors. the clicking indicates that the brake calipher was not secured and is hitting the wheel when the brakes are applied. PLEASE Get a Manual from chiltons or haynes for your car they will help you change your pads and rotors more efficently.

2 problems with 1990 Honda Accord


First one, your clutch might be slipping and need adjusting/replacement(I'm assuming it's a manual transmission), try getting it adjusted first. If you have an automatic, your fluid might be low or filter clogged.
Second one, most common cause of the vibration is warped or rough brake rotors. Sometimes a wheel alignment will help(you would be able to tell- if your front tires are worn unevenly)

Steering whell shimmies when brakes are applied


A common problem with brakes are the rotors warping,which causes a vibration when applying the brake pedal.The brake pads,clamp down on the brake rotor,which slows the vehicle,and in the process,both items are subjected to very high temperatures.This is what causes the rotors to warp,which in turn creates the vibration you feel.Best solution is to replace the rotors and pads,with new.The calipers,which hold the brake pads,should be checked by the technician to make sure the piston is working properly,and not leaking.The rubber hoses should also be checked,no cracks or leaks,etc.Good luck.
