Hi, any of you guys could explain me the difference between Captive and Non Captive Rotors? How do I identify wich type is my Elantra? Can you switch from one to another?
Thanks

Go over to Team SR and do a search on "Captive" on the Braking/Whees/Tires/Suspension forum, and all your questions will be answered.

I just don't remember that topic being covered much over here, and TeamSR was the quickest one I can think of.

There was a post on Fxtreme that showed both Captive and non-captive rotors

In a nutshell. If you have 4 lug bolts sticking OUT plus 4 boltsgoing IN to your rotors, they are captive.

If you have 4 lug bolts sticking out plus 1 or 2 phillips head screws going IN to your rotors, they are NON-CAPTIVE.

Thanks a Lot Guys. I'll take a look at my Rotors. Is there any difference in performance or else between both systems? Why do both systems coexist in one model?
Thanks again.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0 align=middle>

Notice the bolts on the captive rotors.

Err,... I don't think the 2nd one with the red brakes is captive,... the screws can be removed, they're used to line ups stuff when they're manufacturing the car.

Also don't captive rotors have 2 pieces (hub and rotor), whereas non captive rotors are one piece?
