Resurfacing or Replacing Your Brake Rotors

The brake rotors and pads are integral parts of the traction control, stability, and any ABS system. Along with the calipers and brake pads, the disc brake rotors are metal discs that assist with slowing the vehicle down when the brake pedal is pressed. When brake service is performed at the LaFontaine Toyota Service Center, our highly trained certified technicians will:

  • Conduct an initial inspection of the brake system
  • Take measurements of the brake rotor thickness
  • Perform a more thorough multi-point safety inspection of the brake system

the rotors may need replacement with any of the following signs:

  • Squeaking, grinding and squealing sounds during braking
  • The appearance of grooves or hot spots are worn into the rotor caused by the brake pads
  • Wobbling or vibration while braking

How Brake Rotors Wear Down

Just like brake pads, brake rotors will wear down each time the brake is applied. Generally, equipment rotors are designed with a thickness level to provide performance for two or more brake pad replacements. This thickness is compromised over time and reduces the ability of the rotor to dissipate and absorb heat. When the rotor is worn down to its minimum thickness specification, it can no longer be resurfaced and must be replaced.

A thorough inspection of the brake rotors must occur to determine if hard spots, cracks or the excessive build-up of rust are present in the vents. If an issue is discovered, the service technician may make a recommendation for the full replacement of the rotors if the customer is concerned about saving on repair costs, safety, and overall braking performance.
