Hyundai Brake discs - worn on not worn... (pic included)... Sign In

Hi all,
just a quick question, the attached pictures are from my Hyundai. I recently took the car in for an MOT and it passed with no advisories. Couple weeks later I went to a different garage for a handbrake cable supplying/fitting. They told me both rear brake discs were worn and needed replacing. Just wondering what the general consensus is here as to the extent they actually needed replacing (i.e. definitely, maybe, not at all). It just confused me that it passed it's MOT two weeks prior.
Thanks,
Fruitmousse.

Those rotors are severely rust pitted and yes, they would have to be replaced.

See this all the time in rusty New England.
Note the inside where pad or what's left of them isn't touching
entire rotor. That's a problem on top of just tossing rotors and pads
strongly suggesting you'll need calipers as well and might just as well do
flex hoses while spending the money for the full job.
MOT if brakes worked with their testing methods could either miss this
or they really worked well enough? Old, rusted where it really doesn't count, grooves if true you don't feel
and still work.


You just can't undo rust or add metal to refurbish rotors and some calipers, brackets can be too far gone as well.


Expect this to be costly but accidents are lots worse so it has to be done. Brakes this bad are subject to surprise lock ups or loss of braking power at all, all at once!

In the future could you please reduce the size of your pictures? It makes the whole thread hard to read.
