Clio braking issue

Hi guys, i clio sometimes has an issue when braking. it sounds like its coming from the passenger front wheel, and it sounds almost like a vibrating / griding noise. also the pedal vibrates and the lights dim briefly. any ideas what this could be?

Cheers guys

note * front pads were changed in attempt to fix this however it is still happening.

also note this is my first post and cant work out how to move it from engines to brakes

Re: Clio braking issue

hi. sound strange as mostof what youdescribe sound like warpped brake discs. usual for vibration, shaking steering wheel, pulsating brake pedal however lights dimming could be a seperate issue. the only way i think that could be related is if the caliper (whilst vibrating) knocks against your abs wire but i highly doubt it.

my best advice is go kwikfit. free brake checks, get it checked go home get a better price!! lol

Re: Clio braking issue

Calipers can move too much on their pins

Abs rings crack but do not always put the light on

Abs unit may be faulty

We have 3 clios and 2 of them do this its very common check the rings closely first and while there see how much you can move the caliper
