Re: lip around rotors? (veeco3110)

I have that on my factory rotors with about the same miles ... been thinking that some day I'll have that lip turned off (on a disk lathe).

meanwhile they are sitting on the parts shelf with all the other bits and pieces I've taken off the car ....

it's amazing how many extra and un-necessary parts Volvo put on this car

Re: lip around rotors? (petew)

your rotors are extra and unnecessary parts?


From what I've read on the forums, a small lip is okay and actually normal. As long as there are no grooves in the rotor surfaces themselves, you should be fine to replace just the pads.

I have this on the fronts, and will do just pads. The rears might actually be grooved on one side, so I many need to put new ones back there.

Nah...it's just that the stock volvo brake pads are pretty agressive, so they wear the rotor...that's why the stock pads also last a long time...
