Juddering brakes when stopping

Just before the car stops when braking a large buzzing and vibrating noise travels up the brake pedal and can be heard loudly in the cab. When braking on the move there is no noise only when stopping completely. Have changed pads and discs. No difference

the brakes have not been set properly. may be something stopping the pistons going back in. failing that the disc's are bent, can happen when over braking down hills etc. you would need the alinement checking.

Truck doesnt want to stop when I have the steering whell canked all the way?


there must be a vacuum leak in your brake master. try pumping the brake pedal several times every time you make a full turn of steering wheel. if this fixes your braking problem, then replace CHECK VALVE hose in your brake master.

Did you adjust the brake light switch correctly? To adjust the brake light switch, first press the brake pedal down a few inches, then pull the switch plunger rod out of the switch toward the brake pedal arm, as far as you can without using excessive force. Next, return the brake pedal to the pedal stop position against the pedal stop and pull the brake pedal toward the rear to push the brake light switch actuating plunger rod into the switch housing limited by the travel of the brake pedal arm rear travel stop position. This procedure automatically adjusts the brake light switch correctly.
If the brake lights still don't turn off with the brake pedal released, check the brake pedal arm for sticking or binding that is preventing the brake pedal arm from returning fully to the pedal stop when the brake is released.

Juddering and noise on front wheels when braking


The disks may be warped, which will cause a vibration under braking.
Also if it's an ABS system, the vibration is normal but only under heavy braking, and should not continue to vibrate when working properly.

If I understand you correctly, you feel a vibration it the brake pedal when you apply the brakes. Is that correct?
Have your brake rotors re surfaced; they are warped.

"engine makes cavitating noise" ....what does this mean?
