Repeat brake repairs have been performed due to sanding of brake rotors and drums. The sanding of rotors and drums may have been done in reference to a Service Manual or TSB article which prescribes sanding as a repair, however, sanding is neither an effective nor lasting repair for customer complaints of brake roughness or noise.
Machine brake rotors and drums instead of sanding to help reduce brake roughness caused by one of the following conditions:
Rotor thickness variation and lateral runout
Lining or foreign material build-up
DO NOT MACHINE OR SAND ROTORS/DRUMS TO REDUCE OCCASIONAL BRAKE NOISE. IT IS NEITHER AN EFFECTIVE OR LASTING REPAIR.
