The car wobbles slightly under braking. The discs and pads have all been replaced recently and whilst this improved the braking the wobble hasn't gone away. Is there anything in the hydraulics that could cause this?
Also, in a previous reply, you mentioned something about cowl shake in convertibles. I believe my car suffers from this. Is there anything that can be done about this?

Thanks for a really useful site.

Two other things that can cause this are faulty calipers and front end alignment. I have also seen faulty brake hoses on this model.(The ones that connect to the calipers.)
