are you sure that would be a valid check? after all on a w201, the rotor is mainly held down by the wheel slugs, once those are removed, it is only held in place by a small bolt which is only meant to hold it so it does not fall off, this is how I have been checking it so far.

What I was thinking of doing instead is take off the caliper and with the wheel still on, use a micrometer to see if there is any uneveness there, or just go for a ride with 3 calipers and see if the noise is still there, would have to block the last caliper so the breaks work and clip it to the spring so it does not drag behind the car.
