Hey Roelf
sounds like your brakes might be bonding ....give graham a call he is in valhalla
is your car still under nissan grantee?
The pedal jumping under your foot is a problem might be abs not working properly? 15000 is about time for new pads . Mabe just check the disks on a skim machine before you change them?

15 000km on a set of pads should still have a lot of life left on them I think.

It must be something small that is making the nonsense. Possibly an air bubble? I would send it in to Nissan and let them bleed the brakes completely and check the ABS sensors.

Cedric, the petrol brake pads dont last as long as the diesels. I am on 30 000km's now. Stil a lot of meat left. Again another area where you safe by drive a koolstoof :lol:

Roelf,

Jack jou Patrol op en haal een van die voor wiela af. Jy sal dadelik kan sien as jy van voor af deur die rem klou kyk hoeveel vleis jy oor het op jou rem blokkies, dalk is daar iets ooglopend wat jy raak sien wat die probleem kan veroorsaak soos iets wat los is.

Had the same problem only when going down mountain passes and applying slight braking. A shudder would develop as soon as the disks warmed up.
Solved it by fitting a new set of disks from Power Brake. :thumbup:

Apparently it can also be from deposits from your pads on the disks. Abuse them by going to 100km/h and braking hard down to 40km/h 5-6 times. This should make them hot enough to burn away any deposits :salute:

That is why we drive diesels, No need for brakes on down hills as we have the compression to assist. :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: :rolling:

Ag jou g@t ook man! Ons moet briek anders gaan ons vlieg :lol:

Actually the braking with the tiptronic is quite good. I just pop it in manual and shift down and it will keep certain speeds depending in if it is in H or L but must agree it is still a bit fast in L first gear when off road :thumbup:
