Re: Clio Brakes ??????

The first question is what was done to the brakes? Can you feel judder in your steering when you brake? Have the front brake discs been replaced?

If so it could be that they are not seated correctly and when you are braking you are getting a 'wobbly record' effect. This can be due to the flange not being cleaned up well enough before fitting the new discs.
Get the garage that fitted the discs to put a 'dti' gauge on the discs and check them for 'run out'.
Max run out should only 10 thousandths of an inch.

Brake hoses will not cause this problem.

Best of luck and let us know how you get on.
