I went to the local Tear-A-Part today, and found what used to be a rotor on a late 90's Lincoln Continental. I thought I'd share the photo I took. I'm not sure how the owner couldn't feel/hear/see that this thing was shot.

Eh, I don't know, what is the minimum thickness? You might be able to turn 'em and reuse them once more. :icon_twisted:

Looks more like a rotor spring...they were an option on certain models to make the brake pedal bounce to keep the driver awake...

Even if it's just been sitting for a ong time and the rust ate through it almost completely....sheesh. THAT is pinching pennies. Sounds like me :)

Funny you should say that, because at first glance I saw a spring bouncing around (it's pretty windy today), then my next thought was "what the hell is that?".

we have a piece similar to that hanging on the wall of our shop, oriellys called and a lady needed a tire patched took the tire off and a metal circle fell off (It used to be a rotor). She said she would come by and have a new rotor put on, haven't seen her and that was about 7months ago....

Unfortunately I've seen a number of rotors like that...

I think that if you can't tell that your rotor is bad and it gets to a point like that, the shop should just take your license and cut it in half because you're obviously not smart enough to be on the road.
