I'm hoping that someone can shed some light (from previous experiences) on a problem that has just made itself known. After a most enjoyable first trip to the Ring, my brakes have started to play up.
Currently the Traction light is on, and the ABS light has come on a couple of times, but has since disappeared. When I go to press the brake, I get the followig symptoms:
1. sometimes it works fine,
2. sometimes the brake pedal shakes badly (but not like a worped disc)
3. sometimes it depresses, but then goes rock hard, while shaking and kicks my foot off the pedal.
4. sometimes they do not work at all, and I have had to resort to the trusty handbrake to bring me to a stop.
5. sometimes the front left wheel feels like it is locking up (when you approach the stop)
As I'm sure you can appreciate this is not a nice problem to have!!!
At the Ring the brakes did get extremely hot, and at one stage there was smoke from one of the front calipers but I have had this before at track days and never had this as a result. Once they cool down everything is usually back to normal.
I'm hoping that someone as experienced this before and can give me some advise. Hopefully not the killer expensive kind though...
Thanks in advance all.
