Re: One off Judder

A momentary judder might have been the ABS.
If you ran over a slippery surface while braking, one of the wheels could lock for a moment which will trigger the ABS.
Slippery could be anything from diesel spill/ manhole cover/ patch of gravel ect.
Corroded or damaged ABS reluctor rings could give a false signal that might also cause the problem.

Would see if it occurs again before getting too worried.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
