My wheel disc drums (hope that's right technical phrase) are getting slightly rusty. Any advice on how to prevent and remove the rust thats currently there? I was thinking of jus brushing the drum with motoroil or something but dont want to do anything stupid incase theres supposed to be friction there or something.
You could paint them, popular with chav's though. Wirebrush and some time?
Are you talking about the discs? ie the front brakes? They're not drums, drums are on the back brakes. A little rust is fine, it will come off after a good stop or two. Putting motor oil on the discs is a serious mistake. I don't how long it would take to come off.
Come on, did you actually paint your calipers? I hope you bought the car like that and didn't do it yourself.
I can't believe you were even contemplating putting oil near your brakes...you do know how they work right? Friction caused by the brake pads acting upon the metal discs causes the car to slow...oil is a lubricant and if this got near the brakes they would not work!! I thought that was common sense, obviously not.
Don't worry about rust on brakes, they are all protected from it and it comes of during normal road use.
Alrite thanks for info everyone, I shall be reppin you all.
