Unhappy Rotor rattle ! ! !

My '03 just went out of warrantee and I noticed the back rotor is rattling in time with engine vibration at idle. Anything I can do to calm it down?

I read somewhere... once upon a time that placing a "Dab" of RTV or Silicon on the mounts / washers might quiet it down.

Any opinions?

Any ideas?

rotor rattle

Had 27k on mine and it sounded like a cow bell , changed it for an EBC brand for 40% of a new OEM.

yup.. a floating rotor will rattle when loose due to time/distance/use.

Replace buttons possibly...?
