Gear oil on the rotor
I recently had an axle gasket start leaking on the front passenger side. Gear oil got all over everything creating a pull in the drivers side when I hit the brakes because the passenger side pads were no longer gripping the rotor due to all the oil. I took everything apart cleaned everything up put on new pads and while it doesn't pull nearly as hard it still pulls a little when I brake. I am assuming that is because Between the heat of the pads on the rotor I must've burned some of the gear oil into the rotor? . It was suggested that I use a very light grade sandpaper On the rotor and then hit it again with brake cleaner and clean it up more, which ill do again today. But Wondered if anybody else had come across this issue or had any other suggestion on completely cleaning off that rotor (if its even possible to get out all residual gear oil) without having to take it off again?
