Default Horror story: Brake disc

Quote:
When the owner of this vehicle dropped it off with Martin, at Discount Tyres in Sittingbourne for its MOT, they mentioned a noise which had been coming from the front of the vehicle when braking.

Martin offered to carry out an inspection of the brakes but the owner declined and asked only for the MOT to be done.

When driving the vehicle in for test, Martin noticed the ABS light was on. When carrying out the underside inspection, he couldn’t see a brake disc on the nearside front, so decided to abandon the test.

Just incredible that caliper was still braking the car judging by the shiny inner disc remnants

I knew a Mondeo which had been parked a while. The metal fins between the vented disc faces had rusted away. When the owner braked the two parts separated. Nasty noise ensued but calliper wasn't damaged and no accident either fortunately!
The bits have been lying around so have deteriorated a bit but I'm sure you'll get the 'picture'.

The person who was driving with the brakes like that really shouldn't be driving at all IMHO if they are that unaware of what's going on with their vehicle!
Let's all be thankful for MOTs! They're a damned nuisance when they come along, but look what would be on the road otherwise. I can just remember the "ten year test" coming in. As a car obsessed kid I saw a lot of cars with bald tyres down to the canvas! An awful lot of old cars were scrapped as uneconomical repairs when the test came in.

I blame the MOT centers! MOT's are a visual inspection and that as a fact is taken as an advantage to the MOT centers these days, 1 in 1 out get paid easy dayz! they are not allowed to take the wheels off believe it or not! so if you don't have alloys and have fat closed in hubs on the MOT center relies solely on what the car reads on a dyno for example or by diagnostics. MOT center passed my 207 with completely seized rear brakes, no pads left, scored discs (like mountain scores) and seized calipers!

What a Joke.
