Brake pad wear
« on: October 09, 2020, 06:49:36 PM »
I found this brake pad in the gutter outside my home. So somewhere out there in my neighbourhood is a car with very little in the way of  brakes, makes you wounder just how many cars around us are in such a poor state of neglect and ready to drop vital safety components. How could the driver of this car not know the car has brake issues. The lining is totaly worn away and there are score marks in the backing plate showing rotation marks. I wounder if the piston popped out with next press of the pedal.
