HOW MUCH DOES MERCEDES BRAKE ROTORS REPLACEMENT COST?

Average brake pads & rotors replacement for your Mercedes typically runs around $451 per axle. Overall price for your Acura brake rotors replacement may vary based upon what type of parts are used, the availability of the parts and the length of the repair the job. When driving in the hot, humid Houston weather, you may notice your brake rotors look a little rusty. This happens a lot on traditional brake rotors because they're not coated. Many Acura owners and drivers alike prefer to install our zinc coated brake rotors for maximum protection against rust & corrosion. We recommend fully coated brake rotors and top grade brake pads such as our Duralast Elite line to help combat Houston humidity! 

WHAT ARE BRAKE ROTORS?

Brake rotors are the second most commonly replaced brake part on vehicles. Brake rotors are metallic discs (some high performance vehicles use ceramic discs). The rotor is sandwiched between the brake pads. The brake rotor is mounted on your wheel hub & bearing. As your wheels turn, the rotors turn. When you apply the brakes, the brake pads squeeze together causing friction. This friction against the rotating rotor causes your wheels to slow down. 

Many repair shops will resurface or cut brake rotors to save the customer money. At Best Damn Brakes we do not cut rotors. The nominal thickness of the brake rotors must be measured before turning them on the lathe. If the nominal thickness is within specification, theoretically the rotors can be cut. There is one problem though, cutting brake rotors at any thickness makes the rotors thinner. The thinner the rotor is the more susceptible they are to heat, cracks & distortion. 

CAN I DRIVE WITH WORN OUT BRAKE ROTORS?

If you suspect your brake rotors are worn out we highly recommend not driving the vehicle until one of our qualified technicians have inspected and repaired the issue. Brake rotors can develop hairline cracks. These cracks are usually developed due to excessive heat. Brake rotors may also develop lateral runout (uneven rotor faces). When the faces of the brake rotors are uneven, the brake pads won't be riding on a smooth, flat surface. You may notice a vibration when applying the brakes.

WHAT ARE SYMPTOMS OF BAD BRAKE ROTORS?

When your brake rotors need to be replaced you may experience one or more of the following:

  • Vibration - If your brake rotors have developed lateral runout, you'll experience a vibration when applying the brakes. The surface of the brake rotors have become uneven and have developed low spots. Imagine driving down a road with many potholes.

  • Brake Grind - If you're hearing a grinding noise when applying the brakes, this almost always means your brake rotors have been damaged. The grinding noise is coming from one or more of the brake pads being completely worn down to the bone. When all of the friction material has worn off of the brake pad, the metal backing of the pad will begin to rub on the rotor. Once the pad has ground out the rotors, you'll need to replace them

  • Cracks - If you see cracks in your brake rotors, do not drive the vehicle. You'll need to have a certified technician come out to inspect/evaluate your brake rotors. The only solution is to replace the brake rotors.
