Front Brake Rotor Gouged
Howdy All,
Wanted to check to see if any of you have had an issue with one (or more) of the brake rotors becoming gouged and torn up in a relatively short period? My 2014 F350 has 65k miles on it and I recently heard the grinding noise, I couldn't stop at the time and check it then. This morning I noticed more than the normal amount of brake dust on the front left wheel, so I looked at the rotor through the wheel spokes and it is gouging partially across the surface. The other part of the surface is slick. I checked the other 3 brake rotors and they are slick as a whistle, so the brake pad has somehow gotten into the rotor or a foreign object got in there, not sure yet, but it will be checked out and corrected. I'll let you know what I find.

My wife drives a 2014 Ford, Explorler , Limited, four-wheel-drive. We now have 53,000 miles on it and have had no issues at all"

I bet something got logged in one of the rivet holes. At least I hope it's that simple

Ive had this happen before when a rock got between the pad and rotor. Its common.

Take the pad off and see how bad its gouged, you may be able to have a shop turn the rotor to save it. If not, I would replace rotors and pads on both sides of that axle.
