2012 Nissan Sentra Braking problem

Asked by Apr 08, 2015 at 12:45 AM about the 2012 Nissan Sentra 2.0 SL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello everyone. I need some advise from anyone that may have a clue on what's
happening to my car. I recently replaced the Brake Pads and they resurfaced the
rotors at the shop. The problem was that they had a bad calibrated machine at the
shop and they made my good rotors bad. So the brakes started to feel bumpy. I took it
to another shop and they had a hard time to resurface them propertly. I had to go to
another 2 shops in order to find one with a propertly calibrated machine and now the
brakes feel smooth. HOWEVER. I drove to the Mexican Forest where there's a lot of
sharp curves and the front driver wheel started to do something really wrong. When I
brake while turning to the left, the wheel locks and brake making the car suddenly turn
to the left. It does that for about 1 sec and the it releases it. I have to hold the steering
wheel very hard so I don't loose control of the car. The problem only happens when I
brake while turning to the left. There's no problem while turning right, nor there is any
problem if I don't brake when turning left. If anyone here have any idea whats the
probelm, it would be really appreciated, Thank you!!

Make sure the hose going to the caliper didn't get twisted when they reinstalled the caliper.
