Brakes are going nuts!! HELP!!!
Hello Board, I have a problem with my 1987 300E. My brakes will work fine at 15-30 MPH, but below 15MPH, the brake pedal "shudders" when I try to stop. The brakes also seem to lose firmness after a 15 minute drive. Afte the drive, I have to push the brake pedal down ALL the way to the floor to get the brakes to work. It is very scary because I have press way down to get any brake response. Sometimes I pull over on the highway and repeatedly press the brakes in hope of building up pressure in the brake system. I had the car checked out and found that:
-->the right front brake sensor is broken
-->my rotors are worn out
-->my brand new pads are now worn unevenly
The mechanic also said my ABS is "over-active".
Does anyone know what is ACTUALLY causing my brakes to function like this.
I plan on switching to cross-drilled rotors, but I do not want to spend big $$$ and have to spend extra $$$ if my brakes still end up acting funny.
