Hi, I recently purchased the Audi A6 2000 2.8 and after 1 month driving it noticed that when i brake the car shakes. When you pull away it's great. Maybe the engine or the ABS senosor? Under 40,000 miles. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have a 1999 Audi A6 and I have had to replace my front rotors and pads
twice in 2 years...I have just taken the car back to the dealer because the
car 'pulsates' as I apply the brakes...is this a problem we are going to have
to live with?
It is very common for the rotors of eurpoean cars to be very sensitive to the torque applied to the wheel bolts. VW/Audi specs call for slightly less than 100 ft/lbs. Much more and the rotors will tend to warp due to the stress of the overtorquing or equally common uneven torque from bolt to bolt. I have often seen torque levels exceeding 200 to 250 ft/lbs after a brake job, a tire repair or rotation. I always retorque the wheel bolts after such service using a micro adjustable torque wrench.
