I need to replace the rotor assembly. The plastic splines are all sheared off. The bearing seems to be in very good condition. My question is about the center bolt. It will loosen and tighten as the drum spins. Is this happening because the plastic splines are sheared or do I have another underlying problem going on?
ANSWER Hello Scott,
The missing splines will assist the bolt to loosen up a lot, but the bolt should also have Locktite 242 59133109 on the threads. I doubt that there is an underlying problem.
