Thanks for putting it on Bruce,gives an insight to what problems can afflict that set up if your unlucky and apparently not lasting the life of vehicle. A bad batch can render them u/s after minimal mileage.
+ Another thing with them is care needed in removing wheel.The wheel needs to be very slightly above ground in removing to take off the hub upright as if edge catches the disc it could chip edge off rendering it unserviceable.
