Warped Brake Discs?
« on: Jul 26, 2015, 09:06 PM »
I came across this interesting article that sheds some light on what is often diagnosed as warped discs and is nothing of the kind. A good read.

Thanks for the link - lots of REAL info.

I found this especially important

"DOT 3 AND DOT 4 brake fluids are ether based and are hygroscopic in nature - i.e. they absorb water vapor. As the braking system in not quite airtight, a significant amount of water can be absorbed from the atmosphere in the course of a year. A 3% water content in brake fluid drops the boiling point as much as 170 degrees F. Brake fluid should be completely replaced annually."
