Steering Wheel Shakes when I brake


#1

2005 HHR - Each time I press the brake pedal the steering wheel shakes - depending on how fast I’m going and how hard I press the game is how much shake there is the the steering wheel and front end. Any ideas?

Sorry for the misdirection, dont know where that came from. Should read depending on how fast I’m going and how hard I press the brake is how much shake there is to the steering wheel and front end.

Most likely, your brake rotors are warped and need to be replaced. However, there is also the possibility that you could have to replace tie rod ends.

The latter possibility can be dangerous, so I would suggest that you have your front end looked at a.s.a.p. While it is up on the lift, also have the rotors checked for excessive runout.

Definitely warped rotors. Have them resurfaced or replaced as needed. Probably time for new front pads too.
