Driving about on Monday and I could hear an unusual noise from the brakes.started to get louder,then suddenly BANG..came to a grinding halt,tried to move it accompaned by lots of horrible grinding noises,got it recovered to the garage and upon examination it was found that the complete center of the front brake disc had broken away,just left with the two discs and the center boss..wow..had both fronts stripped down and replaced everything,could have been "interesting" on the motor way pulling my caravan at about 60mph,guy says he has never seen anything like that before...it has to happen to me,, Very Happy

that's why I inspect things now and then... just to see what's going on
catch problems before they cause accidents
