Having problems with your 1997 Mazda Protege ?
Front end shaking violently when braking - 1997 Mazda Protege
Hi BM, When you press the brake pedal do you feel a kickback or a pumping action against your foot? If so the problem is with the brake discs. they will need skimming or replacing. If you do not feel the pumping action, have the tyres and the front end checked, looking for wear in the suspension rubber bushing, ball joints, tie rod ends, rack ends, and any damage to the front superstructure. The shock absorbers can also cause a bouncing and thereby instability when braking. Regards John
