Brakes and Rotors

well was driving to help my step son(he killed his battery) when i heard a horrible noise off my brakes. when i got home i looked at them and thought that my passenger rear brakes had locked up.. there was brake dust everywhere and my rotor had grooves in it. when i got the wheel off to look closer i didnt see much pad.. after getting the caliper off(i think thats what its called) i realized i had no pad left on the out side and very little pad left on the inside. so bare metal was ripping into my rotor.

so my question is how do i get my rotor off to take it to someone to either get it turned or get the news i just have to replace it.

chances are you need a new caliper on that side as well. Without seeing it, it sound similar to what happened to my left rear caliper. It locked up and cracked the stock ceramic caliper. You can aftermarket ones that are stainless.

If the grooves are real deep, chances are good that you will need to replace them as they make rotors thin now and they do not have the ability to turn much material out of a rotor before it is out of spec.

Use a BFH (Big F******G Hammer) and smack the brake rotors as hard as you can to knock them off.
