Hi Guy
I am new to the forum, and i know it is not the right place to have this tread of mine. But as there is no 940 info avilable on this forum, will be greatful if someone can answer to my proble.

Whenever i apply brake on my subject wagon, the break paddle pulsates. What could be the reason for that. I have buffed up the rear rotars and have checked the brake dics also.
Any help will be highly appreciated

I would think you have warped front rotors. Not many people have success turning them. I have helped a friend and he buys junkyard rotors. Cheap pads and hard breaking in the rain warps them. At least by bendix quality pads.

You mot likely have warped rotors, either front or rear. If the front rotors are warped you will feel a shimmy in the steering wheel. If the rear rotors are warped you will not feel a shimmy in the steering wheel. Don't waste your time buying used rotors. Buy new quality rotors and pads, they are what stop the car. Not the place to be cheap.
