Know the Factors Behind your Brake Rotors Turn Blue

Description:

In a disc brake system of your car, the brake pads, calipers, and the rotors are the vital components which are useful for performing the operations and slowing down the car. Generally, the brake rotors of your car are gray or silver in color in a good condition car. But in worst conditions, the silver or gray color brake rotors turn into blue color and damage few parts of the car. Here the given s will help you to know about all the related factors behind the color changing issues of the brake rotor. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Know the Factors Behind your Brake Rotors Turn Blue


1
Know the Factors Behind Your Brake Rotors Turn
Blue
2
In a disc brake system, the calipers, brake pads
and rotors are the vital components for operation
and safe slowing of the car.
3
Normally, the brake rotors are silver or gray in
color, but under some conditions, they turn into
blue color.
4
Working of brake rotor system
5
In the disc brakes, pressurized brake fluid is
sent through the lines from the master cylinder.
6
Within the caliper, the fluid actuates a piston,
which accurately closes the caliper and the brake
rotor gets squeezed between the inner and outer
brake pads.
7
This squeezing action of the caliper and pads
against the rotor generates friction and heat
required to slow and stop your car.
8
The generation of heat and excessive
temperatures can result in damages such as the
bluing of the brake rotor.
9
Common Factors for blue brake rotors
10
1-Locked caliper
These are the most common factors behind turning
the brake rotors of your car into blue color.
2-Corroded slide pins
3-Driver error
11
Locked Callipers
12
A common factor for rotors to turn blue is that
the caliper is locked and the brake pads remain
in almost constant contact with the metal.
13
This might be slight enough that you dont feel
any drag during normal operation, but it will be
enough to produce significant heat and wear.
14
Corroded Slide Pins
15
Your car's calipers slide back and forth on
metal pins which need to be well lubricated,
clean and free of debris.
16
When they get corroded, the caliper will not
slide in and out properly and remain too close to
the rotor rather than moving back to the start
position.
17
Driver Error
18
When the driver regularly rides the brakes
because of a lot of stop and go driving or
driving more in hilly areas, then it could be the
reason for blue blue rotors.
19
Constantly engaging your brakes causes the same
buildup of heat as having a locked caliper, but
youll observe bluing on two or four rotors,
rather than just one.
20
Importance of brake rotor repair
21
Extreme heat can make your rotors to warp and
even crack, and your brake pads will deteriorate
rapidly, leaving you with less stopping power.
22
When your car has blue brake rotors, it can
develop into an expensive problem and also
reduces your safety on the road.
