Minimum thickness of Front discs on 987.1 3.2

Hi All,
Can anyone advise on the minimum thickness of the front discs please? I know that it is located on the outside edge, but since mine were fitted in 2015, that area is corroded making visibility a challenge!  Further, I know the difference between Max and Min is 2mm, and after measuring the front discs, I have a dimension, just need to know what the minimum dimension is please?

I believe that the disc minimum thicknesses are 26.0mm (front) and 22.0mm (rear) for 2005> vehicles.

If they are corroded and you are concerned, just stick new discs on and be done with it!!

There is a bit more to it than just thickness, but here is an extract of the workshop manual.  If you want the whole sheet, drop me a PM with your email address.
