Sometimes when you press the brakes there is a judder similar to judder when ABS activates. It sounds like it is coming from the front brakes.

It could be the ABS that is working but it happens regularly and under circumstances where ABS doesn't need to come in. i.e when braking for a juction, gently, this happens.

There is no ABS warning light coming on apart from when the car is first started which goes off as normal.

Brakes appear to be in a healthy condition with plenty wear left on the pads. Tyres are also in good condition. The car has also passed the MOT with this problem.

Anybody have any ideas what the problem could be?
I just had this and the garage said the drive shaft was broken (an abs part on it) 120 quid later and the brakes are fine. Part cost 70 and 30-40 in labor.
