What is a brake rotor and how does it work?

Attached to each wheel in a disc brake system on a vehicle is a heavy metal disc called a "brake rotor". A pair of brake pads are sandwiched around the rotor, held in place by a hydraulic clamping mechanism - the brake caliper. When you press on the brake pedal, the brake pads are squeezed against the sides of the brake rotor, creating friction to slow and stop your vehicle. When you release the pedal, the caliper releases the brake pads and frees up the rotor so the wheel can continue to rotate.

Signs that a brake rotor needs to be resurfaced

A brake rotor will wear down over time. Depending on driving conditions and habits, a rotor may also develop scratches, grooves, hot spots, or warpage. At a minimum, your brake rotors should be resurfaced with each brake pad replacement. Otherwise, they may need to be resurfaced if you notice any of the following

Pulsating brake pedal

Vibration in the steering wheel

Grinding noise when braking
