Brake pad shims create a barrier between the brake pad and caliper. This video is sponsored by ADVICS.
Now that the warped rotor myth is busted, and we’re not just replacing the rotor and moving on, what are we doing instead? Measuring runout First, check for rotor surface runout with the wheel mounted. Components should be marked as you perform an inspection of the assembly. By measuring the rotor on the hub, you
The first thing to remember is that all brakes make noise. When the friction material makes contact with the rotor, the coupling causes the brake pad and rotor to oscillate and vibrate. In engineering terms, this is called “force coupled excitation,” which means that the components are locked as a combined system that will vibrate
