Brake disc also known as rotors and are part of the vehicle braking system. If you like working on your own vehicles it would be good to do a little research before completing the task. Rotors are metal disc and come pre-packaged with an oily surface and plastic cover. They are placed in a cardboard box for shipping and sales. Once a buyer receives the product it must be removed from these packing materials and prepped for install. This means cleaning the rotors thoroughly to avoid pre-mature wear and tear. They should be cleaned both inside and out with a break cleaner. However, a less expensive and more thorough way to clean the parts can be done via the use of dish soap like Dawn. This soap is less abrasive and breaks down other contaminates besides the oil better than brake cleaner. Once the rotors are cleaned make sure to rise and dry. Then apply the adhesive protector to both your pads and rotors prior to installation. Also try to keep your hands and tools clean to prevent other contaminants from ruining the surface of the rotors prior to installation.  Here at DitY Auto Repair our friendly staff can assist you on a DIY brake job by explaining these steps and more to improve your vehicles brake life. This week’s tips from the Team at DitY Auto Repair have safe and fun summer.
