Got myself a Dodge 50 1989 and runs great but the braking are little lumpy and feels give a judder when braking.  It does brake though but wonder if need to worry about it.  Wonder if bad or discs can cause this ?  Not had long to o the look out for a manual if anyone knows where to get one from.   Thanks Jo

I would start by looking closely at the discs/drums and the friction surfaces in contact with them

jack up each end and check for free-wheeling/lock up (and compare left to right) with brakes off/on

uneven wear on disc/pad or drum/shoe, loose component or contamination (hydraulic fluid/hub grease/diff oil seepage?)

check also for loose suspension/steering - worn ball joint(s), leaf-spring eye bushes, loose spring bolts etc.


manuals appear on ebay from time to time (some but not all pages from some but not all revisions have been painstakingly uploaded, see here for example http://www.dodge50.co.uk/Ma-index.html)
it seemed like a good idea at the time

Warped  Brake Discs can produce a lumpy feel /sensation  at the brake pedal ?  Not sure if your truck is a later square headlamp model with discs ?

even a dodgy master cylinder can cause this but I would check disks and drums a warped drum will also cause lumpy / juddering breaking. the workshop manual on the main site as chugg says has lots of info if you tell us the age and model we will be able to give more detailed help.

Hi, thanks.  There is rust on front discs and wonder if this is the problem and now feels like grinding.  I have price for replacement disc and pads which I think could be the answer so seriously thinking about changing them.  With disc and pads for MK2 it is approx £320.00 do you think this is reasonable.  They claims to be renault parts not franchise ones ?  I thought it was ok as prob never replace again for few years, my hubby thinks its alot but this is not a car so we cant compare. If anyone knows a franchise company that do them please let me know.  ta

 I just looked for my earlier reply but it is on another thread here [url]http://forum1.aimoo.com/Dodge50/ReplyID-4586562/TopicID-2121856/GoToTopic.html[/url] what price you quoted for the disks and the pads not the overall price, I found you decent pads for 20 quid.
