1. Use a suitable brake parts cleaner.

Please Note: Carburettor cleaner and brake cleaner products are not the same. “Carby” cleaner is intended to leave a lubricating residue whereas brake clean will leave a dry surface.

Applying directly onto the disc rotor can damage any paint coating intended to protect the rotor from corrosion.

3. Wipe in a circular motion around the friction ring surface.
