Default Min. Rotor Thickness, for Brake, '02 XLE Camry

Does anyone know what the minimum thickness for turning the rotors on the
front and rear brake set is?

Thanks in advance.
Jim

If you are doing the brakes yourself , why bother, turning a rotor costs
10, new rotors cost 20.

On my 1998 Corolla, it says in stamped lettering on the rotors, maximum
inside diameter 201 mm. Your Camry's rear rotors may be lettered similarly.
Your dealer-provided Camry manual might say what the settings for both the
front and rear should be; if not, a Haynes or Chilton's manual should help.
Disc brakes pretty much all have attachments that will make a squealing
sound when you hit the brakes and the pads need to be replaced. Sometimes
when the front pads need replacment, it's also time to replace the front
rotors, too.

He wanted to know minimum THICKNESS, not min/max DIAMETER.

In the case of drum brakes (still the usual type used on rear axles), the
maximum diameter of the rotor is the appropriate spec. The diameter
increases as rotor metal wears away with braking over time, although the
pads wear faster. This max. diameter spec. is referenced in car manuals and
the owners' guides.

Having said that, I notice disc brakes on the rear among more and more late
model cars; perhaps this gent's car has disc brakes on the rear. I don't
know about 2002 Camries.

You still don't get it. He wants to know how THICK the rotors should be,
not the diameter measurement. What you said is true for the DIAMETER but it
does not answer the question about THICKNESS

Yep, I want to know how much metal I've got left before replacing. I can
mic the rotors pretty easy, but I don't know what the limit is (yes I
understand that it's stamped on the rotor, but I haven't been able to find
it).

Thanks again,
Jim

In my manual for a '96 4cyl, the front rotors standard thickness is 28mm
new,..the minimum thickness after machining (to remove scoring) is 26mm. The
rear brakes are drum.

Not a great deal to play with 1mm (40 thou) on each side. Probably 'cause
their ventilated.
