- My model of MX-5 is: __NC 2.0
- I’m based near: __London
- I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: __brake judder
3 weeks ago I had the pads, lines replaced, fluid changed for dot 5.1. Since then periodically handbrake warning light on. I thought it was an electrical glitch, then realised it’s also the light for low brake fluid level. I checked the level, was 1/3 towards minimum. I topped up to about 2/3, using dot 4 as I didn’t have any other. This was during track day.
Next few laps, bad brake judder. Steering wheel and brake pedal vibrated a lot under braking. I pulled in, waited 30 mins, issue was gone. No judder for the rest of the day.
All explanations for brake judder I found point to issues which wouldn’t ordinarily solve itself (like distorted discs etc). Any ideas?
