What Is a Brake Rotor Replacement?
Brakes work by using friction between brake pads and rotors to stop the wheels from rotating. If the rotors are not smooth and within the required specifications, braking quality can be significantly degraded. To solve this problem, the rotor is replaced with a new part.
How Is a Brake Rotor Replacement Done?
Brake rotors and usually pads are replaced in pairs. The brake caliper containing the pads is removed and the rotor is pulled from the axle. A new rotor is fitted and pads installed in the caliper. The caliper is reinstalled, and then the brake fluid system is checked for fluid levels and any air which may have entered the lines. Finally, the vehicle is road tested.
Have your brakes checked regularly during seasonal maintenance. You may have gotten used to poor braking, but your Wrench Mobile Mechanic can let you know if your vehicle can do much better.
Symptoms That Indicate You Need a Brake Rotor Replacement
Any of a number of sounds, vibrations, or irregularities when braking can indicate that a brake rotor replacement may be necessary. If anything sounds or feels wrong, check it out! A visual inspection of the rotors can also reveal grooved, damaged, warped, or overly worn parts.
In an emergency, braking systems need to respond quickly and reliably. Irregularities may still provide some degree of braking, but quality brakes are essential for safety as well as fun driving.
Standard vehicles run $250 to $500 per axle, about half for labor and half for parts. Performance vehicles often cost more for specialized parts.
Can I Do It Myself?
For most vehicle owners, it's not worth the time and hassle. Brake fluid system issues, wheel bearing concerns, and special tools used to pull and install rotors can complicate the job.
Safety: Can I Drive Without Doing a Brake Rotor Replacement?
Poor quality braking is a risk no one should take. If there are problems with rotors, they should be replaced promptly. If there is significant damage, such as from worn-out pads making grooves in the rotors, they should be replaced immediately.
