MG MGF Technical - Please could I have some advice - (NFC)
As I'm temporarily in charge of the Rover Rag-top now, while the 'F' is away being loved by someone else, I wondered if I could still ask your advice.
The steering wheel vibrates under braking. It's as simple as that really. I have 2 new front tyres. Balancing and tracking are spot on and The problem was there before.
I would be grateful for and pointers.
|Warped disks maybe? Or uneven wear on them?|
|Thanks Richard - I had better get them checked.|
Richard is probably spot on,however I had a 216 ragtop a few years ago with the same problem, after checking the obvious as you have done fitting new disk pads cured the problem, never quite sure why.
|Major vibration problems with an Orion a few years ago was eventually cured by balancing rear wheels after spending a fortune on disks and pads and front wheel balancing, tracking etc|
|Hi, I had a 216 Gti a few years ago, and it was a bugger for warping the front discs - I 'd be pretty confident that's your problem..|
|I used to have a 1994 Rover 214 and had the same problem. Now owned by my dad who's just had a HGF - rad corroded and lost all coolant. :(|
