Can you use sandpaper on rotors?
Emery cloth (sandpaper)
Over time, brake pads (and rotors) can glaze over, and brake performance will suffer. A quick fix is to remove the pads and lightly rub them across clean sandpaper. You don't want too fine a grit — a grit of 120 or below will do the job well.
Can you put brake grease on rotors?
Because it's so important, here's that reminder again: Don't ever put lubricant on the rotors or the insides of the pads where they contact the rotors.
