I have a 2004 reg Mondeo 2.0 TDi which has developed a judder which I can feel both when cruising along the motorway (50+ mph) and also when braking (any speed). At first I changed the front brake pads which reduced the severity of the issue considerably but didn`t completely solve it. Next the rear pads got changed, slight judder still there. Finally I`ve had the wheels rebalanced but still the judder is there.
Some other info:
I didn`t change the pads cos thay all looked nearly new.
All the wheels and tyres are brand new. I bought new alloys after the orginal ones corroded leading to rim leaks and constant slow punctures
The car has another issue of pulling to the left but I know that is down to a misalligned rear toe adjustment arm (see my other post).
I did ask Quik Fit to rebalance all the wheels but I`m fairly sure they only did the fronts.
I`m quite happy to tackle any task on the car, have built kit car in the past and have a garage full of tools So avoiding high garage costs would be nice but if it needs specialist tools then I`ll have to fork out
If its not the pads or the wheels, what else could it be?
How do I check "washout" on the new pads and how do you adjust it?
Any other thoughts / ideas?
Any help much appreciated.
