View Full Version : Resurfacing Rotors

Right now everytime a brake I hear a sqeaky sound and at the end of it I hear something gashing something aroung there. Anyone know what else It could be? The rotor looks preety smooth to me but the mechanic said I should resurface it so I dont know right now. Anyhelp would be appreciated

most brake pad sets have "wear indicators" built into the compound. it's usually a piece of copper or brass (?) embedded in the pad near the end of its usable material, and it will make a squealling/scratching noise to let u know its time to change ur pads <img src="http://www.zilvia.net/f/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt='???'>. u should get ur rotors resurfaced when u change pads, cuz they do get &nbsp;glazed with use. u don't have to.....but highly recommended <img src="http://www.zilvia.net/f/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>
