Perpetual Front Brake shudder
Over the past two years, I have replaced the front rotors on my car 3 times, twice under warranty fortunately, due to continual and increasing shudder. Finally after a few YouTube viewings I said F*&k it, I can do this myself. Testing myself on the rears first, I had no issues, so I went all in and replaced the fronts, pads and all.
Damned happy I did, and pissed off as well. Turned out someone didn't put the locator screws back on the front rotors. I'm 99.9% certain that this was the cause of the shudder, two 60c screws (which the Stealership charged me $8.00each for).
Anyway it was a simple and very successful operation.
