Hey everyone, I'm asking this on behalf of my girlfriend and her 2008 Nissan Versa.
Her steering wheel shakes while under braking. I've already replaced the front rotors and pads, which cured this for only a few days before the shaking came back. The brake fluid was changed a few months ago so I'm a little lost as to why this is still happening. I'll get a chance this weekend to look at the rotors and pads again, just wanted to see if I should be looking at anything else, thanks!
'00 Beetle, 1.8t T3S60, Brute Rods, Supertech Valve train (stock cam shafts for now), port and polished small port head, custom FMIC (pain in the a** on a Bug!), Bosch 440cc injectors, 3.5FPR, Catch Can, 2.0 Coils with Iridiums, Wilwood BBK, too much other stuff to list, too much $$ spent.
Turns out one of the retaining tabs on the carrier wasn't inserted into it's corresponding loop on the pad. Fine, I re-inserted it and it worked fine for two weeks of her daily commute and an 800 mile road trip and now it's doing the same thing again. I did put the wheels back on w/ a torque wrench ~90ft/lbs in a cross pattern- only 4 lugs.
She's already in the process of buying a 2011 Golf TDI. I just want to get this fixed if she wants to sell it private party.
