Volvo V70 Problems

Vibration From Rear Rotors Under Heavy Braking on Volvo V70

Problem Description and Possible Solution

When braking at highway speeds or when descending hills, a rumbling or vibration felt throughout the vehicle can be from the rear brake rotors. Replacement of the rear pads and rotors is the fix, and make sure that the shop installs the special cut-out shims available from Volvo to help prevent this in the future.
