Range, You MUST change it.....There is no acceptable repair,in my book anyway....

If the darn thing comes apart.......it will be when you are on the brakes....the bind is very likely to break the axle......or the pieces can literally go through the rim......or you,or that little kid in the stands waving the little plastic checkered flag......

Any right side break....rotor,axle,spindle,
wheel........is very likey to cause a roll.

All these should be inspected regularly,and replaced once a year......

I have personally fliped the car, when I knocked down the RF, And when I broke the RR axle........Not Fun.......But it is exciting......lol

Good Luck,

I've had a front one come apart...when the wheel left the car, it took the right side of the body with it. Replace the rotor.

Replace it. A few years ago I was standing next to the turn 4 pit gate at Belleville Kansas and had a 6" chunk of a rotor fly off a latemodel and miss my face by inches.
