Question about 2002 Honda Odyssey
We've just change our rotor and brake pad last August, 2007 and recently felt they is a noise and vibration when braking although we've not been driving alot on the van (abt another 8,500km fm the period we've the installation done). We've just brought it to the Muffler to check since we had it done there. Was told that the noise and vibration came from the back brake and saw that the front and especially the back brake hv very bad rust on it. He told me that they'll machine the front brake but the back brake needs to be replace. The reason cos the van is not being driven too much aswell from the snow and ice and salt accumulation over Winter. We have the van for over 6 yrs fm new and last Aug'07 then we needed a new rotor and brake pad replacement fm Muffler. Currenty, it's not even nearly to a year, we're told to hv to machine front and change the back rotor. Does that sound right?
Yes, depending on the quality of the rotor, in extreme conditions it can rust out quicker. The brake pad graps the rotor, 'cleaning' it as it stops the vehicle. If the vehicle sits for a long period of time then it is more likely to accumulate rust. If a rotor gets out of balance, (this is what causes your vibration) it needs to be remachined. The rotor can only be machined so many times before it is too thin to use. The rear rotor must be thinner than the front rotor. Since this is a vital part of your brake system, it's money well spent to help insure your safety.
