Are you versed with what you will need to do to repair a brake rotor? Brake rotors, depending on their condition, should be worked on or replaced when the brakes are realigned. They absorb much of the heat created by the friction of the brake pads against them during braking. Things like stress cracks, deeply pitted areas from rust, getting out of round (run out), deep grooves in the surface or being worn down to minimum specifications or the discard thickness are signs that it is time to replace the brake rotors. Before replacing the rotors, you can repair them by filing them down. This is done to reduce the un-even spots or taking them to a mechanic to ‘true up’ or re-shape accordingly. Here is what you need to do to repair the brake rotors, in an effort to save some money on a new one.
