Chevrolet Sonic Repair Manual: Brake Rotor Thickness Variation Measurement

Chevrolet Sonic Repair Manual / Chassis / Brakes / Disc Brakes / Brake Rotors / Brake Rotor Thickness Variation Measurement

Warning:

Refer to Brake Dust Warning.

Note:

Any disc brake rotor that exhibits thickness variation exceeding the maximum acceptable level must be refinished or replaced. Thickness variation exceeding the maximum acceptable level can cause brake pulsation.

  1. If the inboard friction surface of the brake rotor is not accessible, reposition and support the caliper with the brake pads. Refer to Front Disc Brake Pads Replacement.
  2. Clean the friction surfaces of the brake rotor with denatured alcohol, or an equivalent approved brake cleaner.

  3. Using a micrometer (1) calibrated in thousandths-of-a-millimeter, or ten-thousandths-of-an-inch, measure and record the thickness of the brake rotor at 4 or more points, evenly spaced around the brake rotor.

    Make sure that the measurements are only taken within the friction surfaces and that the micrometer is positioned the same distance from the outer edge of the brake rotor, about 13 mm (1/2 in), for each measurement.

  4. Calculate the difference between the highest and lowest thickness measurements recorded to obtain the amount of thickness variation.
  5. Note:

    Whenever a brake rotor is refinished or replaced, the assembled lateral runout (LRO) of the brake rotor must be measured to make sure optimum performance of the disc brakes.

  6. Compare the thickness variation measurement to the following specification: Specification


    • J93, J94: 0.02 mm (0.0008 in)

    • JPW, J97: 0.02 mm (0.0008 in)

  7. If the brake rotor thickness variation measurement exceeds the specification, the brake rotor requires refinishing or replacement.

Why Safety Belts Work
When riding in a vehicle, you travel as fast as the vehicle does. If the vehicle stops suddenly, you keep going until something stops you. It could be the windshield, the instrument panel, or the safety belts! When you wear a safety belt, you and the vehicle slow down together. There is mor ...

Child Restraint Systems
Rear-Facing Infant Seat A rear-facing infant seat provides restraint with the seating surface against the back of the infant. The harness system holds the infant in place and, in a crash, acts to keep the infant positioned in the restraint. Forward-Facing Child Seat A forward-facing chil ...
