It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

Hi Gavin;

My name is ***** ***** I will try and assist you today. I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with the vehicle.

The rotors are the actual brake disks that the pads clamp down onto. With 70,000 on the clock it seems very likely that these could need replacing ?
