    Re: front rotor

     This is generally caused by heat from friction. If the calipers do not retract completely and the brake shoes drag on the rotor this causes friction which leads to heat and warps the rotor. Also if the incorrect brake fluid was introduced this will break down the line and o-rings/seals in both master cylinder and caliper which could cause the caliper from working properly. If you provide the year, make and model and whether stock calipers and rotor I can get you part numbers for replacement parts and a rebuild kits if available.
