Do It Yourself: Yes
My front brake disc warped! Cruising at 80 KM/H and gently pressed the brake pedal, the whole steering wheel shook badly. Well, it might be the brake disc and pad combo did not live up to my expectation. This happened right after two rounds of 206 group “Weekend Drive”.
Well, it was an unfortunate month for me. 3 strikes in the row, major issues with me missing all the first three Saturdays of the month.
I will divide this article into three parts which tackled all the issues I had in this month.
DIY Level: Medium
It’s about time my braking system requires some tender and care. This entry will only covers the front disc brake only, I will cover the rear braking system on next article later. The reason being is that time was so jealous on me hence I could not proceed with the rear braking system yet. Will do it when time permits.
For this time around, I will change the parts from Brembo disc + genuine pad combo to all around TRW Lucas parts. I could not find a good Brembo deal in short period of time and Brembo brand currently is in the mainstream market thus to find the best quality like two years ago is like finding a needle in the haystack (imitation is on the rise nowadays). Brembo now is made under license from Chinese factory (info not from a reliable source; just a hearsay).
