Kamphaus AutoCare and Emission Car Care Advice for Hanover Park Motorists: Rotor Problems

Kamphaus AutoCare and Emission Car Care Advice for Hanover Park Motorists: Rotor Problems

The brake rotor, or disc, is attached to your wheel. The brake pads rub on the rotor to slow your car. Rotors can warp, crack or become misaligned. They can also be damaged by worn out brake pads that scratch grooves into the surface. These conditions result in less contact surface for the brake pads, leaving you with reduced braking power. Over time and miles, rotors can also wear down below safe specifications. It is critical for Hanover Park car owners to know that simply replacing brake pads on a wheel with a bad rotor will not solve the trouble. Depending on their condition, rotors may be resurfaced or replaced. Brake noise or a pulsation in the brake pedal are signs of potential brake problems that should be addressed right away. If you have any brake concerns, please have your understanding Kamphaus AutoCare and Emission tech complete a thorough inspection.
