What the Fek is this?



  • I've had a strange and annoying grinding noise coming from my rear nearside wheel area for some time now which I thought was a wheel bearing on it's was out. Tjis had developed into what I thought sounded like bearings squealing recently.

    Today I went out in the car and pulling off from some lights I heard asound like snapping metal and the sound of something falling off the car, my initial thought was the exhaust. So I pulled up and checked the car, everything seemed fine so checked up the road and found this lying in the road..

    To me it looks like a protective plate from the rear of the calipers.

    Should I be concerned about this? Now, though, the noise from the rear wheel has stopped (silence, finally!- well, apart from the rumble of the exhaust)….



  • That would be the brake dust cover fella….. best to get a replacement as you may get crap in between the pads and disc...
