1999 Mercedes Benz 500sl Repair Question
Must rotors be turned?
1999 Mercedes Benz 500sl V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 110k miles
My trusted and respected MB repair shop says that they do not turn rotors when needed, they MUST be replaced. Is this true? I've never had a MB whose rotors could not be turned. It seems to me that replacement would only be prudent if excessive wear were indicated...not normal driving wear.
I think that MB recommend replacing rotors at each pad change, you do not have to do this and you can machine them if required, they have a min thickness but if they are below this measurement they then must be replaced.
