Do you have to replace rotors in pairs?
Rotors should be replaced in pairs, and should be the same type (composite or cast) as the original. New rotors are ready-to-install out of the box and should require no additional resurfacing (doing so only shortens their life and risks creating runout and vibration problems).
Do you have to buy 2 rotors?
For most common vehicles brake rotors can be purchased separately. It’s not a bad idea to replace them in pairs but it’s not absolutely necessary, in most cases.
How much does it cost to have two rotors replaced?
Labor at a shop to replace rotors and pads is approximately $150 to $200 per axle. Brake rotor and pad repair generally comes out to around $250 to $500 per axle when visiting a professional shop. Calipers are the most difficult and expensive aspect of the braking system to replace.
Do front rotors come in pairs?
No, rotors do not come in pairs only pads or shoes.
What kind of brake pads do I need for a VW Jetta?
Pull the old inner brake pad out of the piston in the caliper. If you are replacing the driver’s side pads, you will need to disconnect the wire for the electronic wear indicator sensor. I recommend buying the Bosch BP1107 front brake pads since they have excellent reviews on Amazon. (But please verify that they will fit your Jetta model.)
Do you need to change the front end rotors on a Jetta?
If your Jetta previously exhibited shuddering, pulsating, or vibrations in the front end during braking, you may need to have your rotors “turned” (resurfaced) or just replace them with new rotors.
How big is the brake rotor on a VW?
Blauparts is an independent Audi VW parts specialist and doesn’t have access to this bill of material info. We therefore cannot tell you what your brake code is. If you’re having difficulty determining what brake code you have, measuring the outside diameter of your brake rotor may be necessary.
Where can I find the brake rotor part number?
The easiest and most reliable way to ensure you’re ordering the correct brake rotor is to find the PART NUMBER on the existing rotor (see image). Wheel removal is required. For verification purposes, Blauparts has begun listing the part number in some brake kit product descriptions (when multiple choices exist).
