they are NOT directional.
same rotor for both sides.

Just seams weird to me.
Every slotted rotor I ever saw had a Left and Right side. So the slots wipe the pad the same way.
Just seams dodge got cheap once again, or just made it simple for the morons in the service dept.

It doesn't make any difference in the performance of the brakes.

Those arent the same numbers
Look closer.

2 as in TWO ROTORS for the front.
and 2 rotors in ther rear.

the 2 front ones are the same part number.
and the same for the rear.:razz:

I was going to get new rotors to switch pads, but I might get them elseware.
At least they will do it correctly. Unless I can get them switch the fronts for free with the tsb since the rears were never done.

I dont see how I can look any closer. The 2 numbers are different

2 05290537AB Rotor, Slotted Front
2 05290538AB Rotor, Slotted Rear

The number for the front rotors are:


05290537AB


The number for the rear rotorsis:

05290538AB



7 is not the same as 8. Those part numbers are different

What is the worst case senario on the new rotor slots not being directional. Is the fact that the rotors slots come in contact with the pads in different directions, will cause one side to break harder?

Sorry, i have a real stupid question here - how can one tell whether the rotors are slotted in the correct direction? Just got my new slotteds as a result of of the TSB and want to make sure they're kosher.

They're all slotted in the same direction so it's not possible to have them installed in the wrong direction. There's still some hoopla going on about this, but really, it doesn't make any difference on their performance. There was quite a bit of discussion about this a while back.
