Your LEAF might benefit from re-calibrating the brake control unit. Bring the vehicle to a stop, and hold the brake pedal all the way to the floor, and keep it there for a full 30 seconds. You may find your braking smoother after that.brycenesbitt wrote:IBut at some point near 4-5 mph there's a grab, which I interpret as the friction brakes kicking in.
Is there a way for a qualified mechanic to adjust the switchover point, and make the braking smooth again?
Grabby at high or low speeds? There's a (temporary?) fix if it happens at low, which is: Turn off traction control, inch forward, hold and press down the brakes FULLY for about 30 seconds. That's it. Mine used to be super grabby on/off style at low speeds, but now they're normal.
Just speculating but perhaps procedure followed to purge/bleed the brakes might have served as a recalibration event.69800 wrote: ↑Thu Jul 25, 2019 1:47 pmMy 2012 has gotten worse each year mainly in cold weather. I had not seen the post so I have not tried the hold brake trick. But I just put new rotors on and new brake fluid. Pads were still at 70% so I left them on. 54000 mile on the car.
