How strange.Do you mean a pulsating in the front brake lever.If so you've got a warped front brake disc.As you apply pressure,the spinning disc is causing the pads>pistons>brake fluid to pulsate causing you to eventurly feel it through the brake lever.Put that beast on a centre stand with the front wheel off the ground ,HK.Look straight down the bike from head to tail,concerntating on the discs.Can ya see it now.????.Check your rear disc while your there and disc bolts for tightness. Best of luck HK.PS.Please leave feedback if i've helped. Tabby..OZ.

When breaking at slow speed the breaks jump a little

If you feel a pulsation in pedal while breaking. Then its most likely, that a rotor is warped in front or back.

When breaking, my break pedal begins to pulsate when stopping. Also, the steering wheel begins to shake when breaking.

Usually a sign one of the front brake rotors is out of round. It could also be something wrong with the abs but I doubt it.

Breaks on Saab 2001

Did you replace the front and rear or just the front? Rear brakes can make the pulsation as well. Also if your ABS system is activating that could be described as a "pulsation". The ABS problem is usually caused by a bad wheel speed sensor or ABS module failure. ABS modules can be rebuilt (see ebay BBA-Reman) Wheel speed sensors are available at most auto parts stores. Some Saabs require the replacement of the whole hub assembly.

Brake pedal shakes/pulsates

warped brake rotors. don't resurface just replace them. if the steering wheel shakes its the front, if the seat of your pants shakes its the rear. in most cases the front will warp first

If a spare tire was put on in the right rearside wasnt able to torqe lugs down only hand tightend will that cause my brakes to pulsate

If the wheel nuts cannot be tightened properly, then yes, this could result in pulsating at the rear end. Tighten lug nuts and recheck.
Also this may be caused by an abnormal spare tyre. Many spare tyres are not put into use and can become distorted or hardened over time. There is a date on the sidewall of all tyres, and no tyres are recommended for use by vehicle manufacturers over six years.

I have a pug 406 2l hdi i have had a problem with the breaks

That sounds like a bad brake rotor or drum. If the brake rotor or drum is thick in one spot and normal on the rest that will cause the pedal to pulsate every time the the rotor or drum reaches that part of its rotation. The solution to this problem is to remove the front and rear rotors or drums and take them to a machine shop so they can be smoothed out, bear in mind you may need to replace them if the thick spot is too great.

I have a Suzuki forenza 2004 and it has been nothing but trouble for me. I recently took my car to Michales tires, to purchase a new set of tires and they told me my Front Strut Mounts were bad, and that...

Get a third opinion. I don't see how the Suzuki dealer person could diagnose a problem from a phone call.

Take off a wheel and see how much brake pad you have left. The pulsating sounds like the rotors need resurfacing. Replacing pads and resurfacting rotors shouldn't be a major expenditure.
