Front Shudder When Braking Repair

Audi A5 Sportback front shudder when braking repair

There could be a number of issues that would make the front of your Audi A5 Sportback shudder.

If you experience a shudder through the steering wheel and it’s only when you hit the brakes, then the brake pads and rotors will typically be the first port of call to look for answers.

You will feel a pulsating sensation through the steering column or steering wheel of your Audi A5 Sportback, only when braking.

This can occur if the disc thickness has variations in it.

This uneven wear on the disc rotors causes the brake pad to grab and release the rotor, resulting in shuddering.

This could be due to the brake pads not being bedded in correctly, or that the calipers not be functioning correctly, or incorrect rotor installation.

It could also be the result of overheated brake distortion or a rusty hub.
