Brake failure omg!!

It's not off a trailer- It's off my transit but I'be NEVER seen anything like this before!

It's not been dipped in the sea. It just had a "Bit of a wobble" and this happened on the way to get the van serviced and could they "Have a look a the brakes"

I think the break happened on the way to the garage (I wasn't driving it) but the corrosion must have been happening for a long time.


2011 van 60k miles

Ooer!

The rotor rusted in half? Wow... I could see that happening on a boat trailer (or my 4-Runner - reminds me that it's time to replace the rear rotors), but not on a strictly road vehicle (unless you're in an area that salts the roads.)

I've had a pair of rotors end up looking similar but not separating into two like that. I my case I badly over heated them with an unbraked 10,000lb trailer in the mountains. about a year later they started falling apart with corrosion.

Sale to a museum could pay for the repair.
