    2001 530i Sport - Titan Silver Metallic
  1. Hello, I have a 530i 2001and I had exactly the same experience as yours. On top I have completely changed everything upfront with Meyle parts. After about 4-5000K km's the dreaded shake returned to ALL its glory ... LOL Please note that the discs were Brembo with Brembo pads, and I have rebuild all 4 calipers and renewed the brake fluid. New tires all around also. The solution is VERY simple. Take the front discs out and send them to someone with a milling machine that knows about brakes and tell them to true them (don't worry it just takes about a 1 or 2/1000th of a millimeter out of the discs) My problem is gone for good. ABSOLUTELY no shaking while braking P.S Don't forget to change brake pads upfront and do not use the ones you have now for ANY reason. Regards Theo

  3. Thank you all for your replies. Issue is now solved. After checking and replacing ALL front links with Meyle parts, changed tires, checked balance, alignment front and rear For future reference: It was a faulty tire valve on the rear left tire that was keep deflating the tire to about 2 bar, all that was enough for the car to wobble when braking from around 60mph, STRANGE but TRUE !!! Valve replaced and all tires checked at 2.5 bar, drives like a dream no wobble at ALL. Thanks again for all your help that guided me to the rear part
  4. Hello Dan, Thank you for your reply. Yes I did check all of them for uneven wear, no signs of overheating or excess brake dust anywhere ... Rear arms where double checked and they are fine (as I was told by my mechanic). One thing that keeps buzzing in my head is that the previous owner had the known issue with the tri-lights on the dashboard, ABS/ASC etc and replaced the front ABS sensors, which apparently was not the problem and after I replaced the ABS Module with a good one and re coded the problem was still present. Maybe and I say maybe they are aftermarket and they are causing the problem sending wrong signal to ABS Module? Lets hope that someone faced the same problem and I will find a solution OR I will live with it LOL
  5. Greetings from Cyprus, Had this issue a while back and not being able to sort it out yet. Steering wheel wobble occasionally when braking from 50-70 miles while on Highway on my 530i '01, does not do it all the time. So far I have done ALL this : 1/. New rotors front and back, new brake pads, rebuild all 4 calipers with original ATE kit, changed brake fluid. 2/. New rims and tires balanced . 3/. All front control arms changed, wishbone, lower strut and steering tie rods. 4/. Checked all bolts and nuts of the suspension for any slack or any loose bolt. 5/. Wheel alignment done. Anybody has any idea what it might be wrong? Thanks in advance for any help/idea given. Regards Theo
