Loose brake rotor

Well as it says, my front left brake rotor is a little loose. I tried to look in my Haynes book but I couldn't really find anything. I'm a little concerned but not to much seeing as though when I tighten the wheel back down it tightens up, but none-the-less I still would like to get it tight on there. Any suggestions?

Well, since they are trapped by the wheel, and then the lug nuts are used to tighten the whole assembly I wouldn't be worried at all. Thats the way the pretty much all work. If they've been on for a while, then they tend be stuck on a little more.

Ok... I got something to check...

Most tire shops will toss the tire on and the hand spin all the lug nuts on a few turns the zap them down with a impact gun. Dodge rotors are know to get off center if done this way. I will hand tighten 2 or 3 nuts evenly and then got to it with the impact gun.

So try backing them off and start with 2 or 3 nuts and tight by hand to seat the wheel again the rotor...

Dully noted, Usually I tighten all of them before I get at it with the impact. Just an old habit.
