... happens after carwash, too. Drive and then brake... presto, viola, gone. :laugh:Has anybody had this issue early on and if so, then how to address...
I've had my ride for three days now. Absolutely love it, but also noticed some small rust spots already on the discs. Not sure how to get rid of them.
Did with my cover, left it for 16 days outside covered and 3/4 the rotor was pristine and the bottom (poking out of the cover) was rust. Looked quite funny. I'm checking the brake pads tonight after it's been sitting for 6 days - will take a pic if it's done the sameYou will never be able to prevent rust from forming on the brake disks unless the car is garaged with AC. A car cover will not do anything to prevent it. You have to get rid of the moisture in the air and that's only done with an AC or a dehumidifier as the main culprit is moisture in the air. Same principle as storing your bicycles indoors to prevent the chain from rusting. Dont worry about the surface rust as the first time you press your brakes, its removed by the pads.
O.P. is in Fresno and it is summer. There is no humidity.Usually from humidity, no? Kind of hard to avoid, and probably not worth worrying about unless planning to show or photograph the car.
23% isn't no humidity. How much is too little for rust spot formation?O.P. is in Fresno and it is summer. There is no humidity.
If the car is outside, maybe the automatic sprinklers are getting it wet at night?
Or maybe the neighbor's dog...
