How To Determine If Your Vw Brake Rotors Need To Be Replaced

Most front Vw brake pads have wear sensors built right into the brake pad material. If you see the Vw brake warning light illuminated on your dash board instrument cluster, you have approximately 3,000 miles left on your front pads and Vw brake rotors. It's usually less than 3,000 miles if you're hard on the brakes, which most of us are. When you see this light go on Vw brake replacement service is in the near future.

The rear Vw brake pads don't include wear sensors and thus, won't cause the Vw brake pad warning light to come on. The main indication of worn rear Vw brake rotors is a grinding metal-on-metal sound coming from the rear of the car every time you depress the brake pedal. When the Vw brake pad material has been fully exhausted, contact with the Vw brake rotor will cause this type of grinding sound. You should seek a Vw brake replacement service immediately when you hear this grinding noise.

The above symptoms usually occur when there is around 40,000 to 80,000 miles on your brake pads and rotors. Another symptom that Vw brake rotors need replacing is vibration felt through the brake pedal or steering wheel while pressing on the brake pedal. This is an indication that the Vw brake rotors are warped and have worn thin, due to age or overheating caused by some other brake component failure.

Important Replacement Reminders - Prevent Vw Brake Squealing

How To Ensure Successful Vw Brake Rotor Replacement

It is important to know that new brake pads along with Vw brake rotors should be bedded in carefully. When new brakes are installed, you need to go easy for the first 150-200 miles. Some customers were perplexed after installing a new set of Vw brake rotors and brake pads because they were experiencing squealing. They have commented that their brake pedal "just doesn't feel quite right." What's causing this?

Typically, all replacement brake rotors after being manufactured are stored and shipped with an oil or cosmoline applied to the brake rotor face. This is done to prevent rust during storage and transport. Often, when it comes time to install the Vw brake rotor, the rushed mechanic doesn't take the time to remove this residue believing it will "burn off" right after you apply the brake pedal a few times. It is important to understand that if oily residue is left on the brake rotor face you will potentially ruin your new brake rotors and pads. Why? Because the oil residue will embed itself on the new brake pads and become "glazed." This causes them to "slip" instead of "bite" into the new brake rotor face. The glazed brake rotor or brake pads generate more heat when slipping and do not allow for the proper brake rotor and brake pad break-in conditions to take place. This condition will cause the brakes to feel weak when you push on the pedal.

Blauparts has endeavored to solve the above mentioned issue for our customers. Select U-Slot kits now include our new Blau HCC Series U-Slot brake rotors. Kits that include HCC Series U-Slot rotors come right out of the box with "Ready-To-Install Technology" that ensures reliable installation! Read more below...

New Vw brake rotors shouldn't be used with old brake pads (visa versa). Why? The surface area of a new Vw brake rotor must come in contact with a flat/smooth brake pad, free from imperfections. The face of old brake pads are imperfect having a glazed and scored surface instead of a flat/smooth surface. Using old brake pads with imperfections will not allow the new Vw brake rotors to bed in properly. This will result in weak braking performance and Vw brake pad squealing. Therefore, always install new brake pads when installing new Vw brake rotors. That is why Blauparts offers Vw brake rotors and pads in one convenient kit to ensure successful brake replacement.

BLAU® HCC (High Carbon Chromium) Series U-Slot™ Vw Brake Rotors

Cheap, aftermarket brake rotors have saturated the market today. Even well known European brand names have compromised on the quality of the brake rotor material. "We Care" about our customers and understand that the key to providing them with the very best Vw brake rotors lies in what the brake rotors are made out of, the alloy material itself.

Blau HCC Series U-Slot Vw brake rotors are now made of a higher carbon cast iron alloy with chromium (Cr) material. This material improvement was used on brake rotors fitted on touring race cars. Rotors made out of higher carbon cast iron alloy with chromium (Cr) material were tested and compared to standard race brake rotors. A reduction in brake rotor temperature at the braking points on the track allowed for an average drop from 360° to 200° C! This improvement in heat dissipation and braking efficiency improved driver confidence, allowing for later braking points which resulted in average gains of 3 seconds per lap!

Blau HCC Series U-Slot Vw brake rotors can now withstand extreme braking conditions because of this high quality material. This improvement, combined with Blauparts' unique U-Slot machining design, guarantees brake rotors that run much cooler in extreme conditions. These improvements will extend brake rotor life, preventing premature Vw brake rotor warping for those who are used to heavy braking conditions and for those who have aggressive driving habits.

Blauparts' Vw brake rotors are manufactured to high OE quality standards in South America. Our partner directly supplies brake rotors to the Touring Car championship, Porsche Cup championship race teams and is a direct OE supplier to Mitsubishi.

BLAU® U-Slot™ Slotted Design vs Cross Drilled Or Standard Slotted Vw Brake Rotors

Performance Blau U-Slot slotted Vw brake rotors are superior in design compared to cross drilled or slotted brake rotors. During demanding conditions, Vw brake rotors can reach temperatures of 800° C or more. The result is gas emissions developing on the brake pad, primarily because of the bonding material. There is then a decrease in the coefficient of friction with the result known as brake fading. Uniform and continuous dissipation of these gas emissions (between the rotor and pads) helps prevent brake fading. Less brake fade means a decrease in the force required to depress the brake pedal, a plus in safety!

Some standard slotted and cross drilled Vw brake rotor designs don't allow for the even and continuous dissipation of these gas emissions. When the brake pad surface compresses onto a brake rotor face having varying slots or holes, gas emissions are vented inconsistently. Irregular gas dissipation increases brake friction and adversely affects braking efficiency. Vw Brake Rotor - Vw Brake Rotors - U Slot FeaturesAnother area where standard slotted or cross drilled Vw brake rotors lose the battle against Blau U-Slot slotted design is in long term braking performance. Over time, this inconsistent gas dissipation (caused when the brake pad surface compresses onto a brake rotor face having varying slots or holes) can cause the brake pads to glaze and eventually create scoring lines in the face of the brake rotor. These score lines create an uneven surface and imperfections that weaken the brake pad's ability to clamp the brake rotor during brake pedal depression, greatly reducing the dispersal of the gas emissions leading to brake fade.

The opposite is true with performance Blau U-Slot slotted Vw brake rotors. The uniform design concept of our U-Slot slotted brake rotors provide continuous and even dispersal of these gas emissions via the precision U-Slot™ grooves. Blauparts' continued innovation, rigorous research, and testing resulted in the development of our most advanced performance brake rotor design yet. Blau U-Slot Vw brake rotors yield stopping performance like no other orbital, slotted, or cross drilled brake rotor on the market!

The unique design allows for continual brake pad surface renewal, resulting in minimal glazing. Long term, the performance of Blau U-Slot slotted rotors create less scoring lines and a smoother surface across the face of the Vw brake rotors increasing the brake pads ability to clamp the brake disc effectively. The performance of Blau U-Slot slotted Vw brake rotors and their ability to disperse the gases in between the brake pads and the rotor face leads to less brake fade, even in the most demanding braking conditions. The anti-rust coating increases the life and look of your brake system (depending on application). Blau U-Slot brake rotors give you the biggest bang for the buck!
